So that means bringing in a guy to compete with Barkley is wrong. Let them duel it out and let the best man win the job. This pick is about competition and pushing a guy like barkley. No job is just handed on this team, as we see you have to earn it and if Barkley is the better qb as you say, we will find out

And it only will cost the team  5th round pick to watch this play out....

 

The good news is that this is a luxury pick, like many say, and the team overall looks to be in good shape.

 

The only downside is that a slag like Fromm will be on the roster for a while.

Brady was the worst combine in history.  

 

Physical tools are nice, but they are not everything.  Peyton, Brees, and Brady...3 of the GOATS, all are not physically gifted.  

 

NO, not saying he will be one of those guys, just saying its not everything.  And in the 5th...the value was too good here.  And more importantly, Barkley looked terrible last year, so a young prospect to bring some competition there for the backup is fine by me in the 5th.  


Yeah, I didn’t watch the combine. I do watch the SEC, however, and while he is clearly cerebral, he just doesn’t have an arm or other physical tools like most NFL QB’s. 
 

Just my opinion, I’m not attempting to get anyone’s panties in a wad. 😃

What is ironic about this both Fromm, Hurts, Tagovailoa all played in the 2018 national championship game.

 

What's the irony?

Barkley is going to eat Fromm's lunch.  Fromm is Peterman 2.0.  

 

Maybe Beane will be able to trade Fromm to the Raiders for a 7th during preseason.

I don’t even know much about Fromm and I still think your full of *****

Yes, she was a babe in 2011.

 

Jake said to the Buffalo media that Josh reached out to him and told him congratulations. Told Josh he wants to play golf with him soon.

...and yet if you talk to UGA fans they think and thought that was insanity. There isn’t one sane person in the US that thinks Fromm is a better QB than Fields (who will be a top 2 pick).
 

Fromm isn’t going to all of a sudden become talented. His ceiling is low. He has a chance to carve out a career as a backup (and a good chance). He is not in any way, shape or form pushing Allen.

 

Which is why he was a 5th round choice. This is getting amusing! I’m already thinking of who will be in the pro-Fromm camp after Josh has a weak game (or half!).

What were they saying

 

Mel mentioned that he's always been pro-Allen, but with his play style the backup QB is an important position. Louis agreed and said QB2 is a top-30 position on the 53 man roster in terms of importance. They had dissenting opinions on how much the combine impacted him; he was Mel's top ranked guy by far and he mentioned that performing right after Eason made his arm stick out in a more negative manner, whereas Riddick said that seeing guys on the same playing field justifies what scouts should think about them relative to others. Both questioned the fit (cliches about Buffalo weather), but like his cerebral ability and shot to develop into a solid backup for us.

Fromm reminds me of cousins in college.  I'm a dawgs fan and I approve of this move.  He could he a very good backup long term for cheap

Ball velocity is probably the least accurate stat, if you can even call it that. There are endless examples of guys with lousy arms throwing mph as hard as guys with huge arms. Every year at the combine. It's worthless.


I agree putting some numbers to the weak arm narrative at all.

Could have been stolen from Patriots too. Glad he is off the board for that reason as well. And like the accuracy. He could be Brady esk if Pat's got him.

was graded as Rd. 1 a few years ago, I think.  

 

prob better than Barkley as a backup.  

 

I think we had a need at CB, OL, and LB depth.  So this pick tells me the Bills like him and aren't sold on Barkely as the backup solution.

How many offensive starters did he lose “every year.”

Not enough to consider him a top 2 QB on any NFL roster
