Former Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm projects to be second-tier quarterback in the 2020 NFL draft, according to two NFL scouts.

Oregon's Justin Herbert, LSU's Joe Burrow and Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa are considered the top three quarterbacks in the draft and on the first tier.

» MARK BRADLEY: Why would Jake Fromm choose to leave?

“He’ll be a second-day guy more than likely,” an NFC evaluator told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Wednesday. “He’s like in that range where Andy Dalton and those type of guys get drafted.”

An AFC executive confirmed, “He’s a second-tier guy.”

Dalton, who played at TCU, was a second-round pick in 2011 by the Bengals. He started for nine seasons and went to three Pro Bowls. He was benched for three games last season.

Fromm will need to have a strong draft process to move into the first round.

“I like Jake,” the NFC scout said. “He’s so smart. A great kid. The arm strength will be a little bit of a concern. The intelligence and the decision-making, all that stuff is good. It will be interesting to see how the process plays with him. But yeah, he’s a solid prospect.”
