NFL draft notes from Georgia-Florida game

 

There were at least 20 juniors and seniors from the Georgia-Florida game who could find themselves on an NFL roster next season.

Georgia won, 24-17.

Some of the highest-ranked players include quarterback Jake Fromm, offensive tackle Andrew Thomas and running back D’Andre Swift of Georgia and cornerback C.J. Henderson and edge rushers Jabari Zuniga and Jonathan Greenard of Florida, among others.

Fromm had a nice bounce-back game after shaky performances against South Carolina and Kentucky. The 6-foot-2, 220 pound junior completed 20 of 30 passes for 279 yards and two touchdowns against Florida.

Scouts tell WalterFootball that Fromm has average arm strength and isn’t a great runner or athlete. However, scouts also love his intelligence and intangibles.

“So while Fromm may not have elite physical traits, they think some evaluators and coaches will fall in love with him and the fact that Fromm has been a winner throughout his college career,” WalterFootball reports.

Thomas, meanwhile, opened holes for Swift – who helped his draft stock with a rugged, 86-yard performance – while keeping Zuniga and Greenard at bay. Greenard finished with five tackles (four assisted), and Zuniga finished with one assisted tackle.

Fanspeak currently rates Thomas as the No. 1 offensive tackle for the 2020 NFL draft.

Henderson, on the other hand, has seen his draft stock take a dip this season, and the Georgia game won’t help. The 6-foot-1, 202 pound junior allowed several third-and-long conversions while playing soft coverage, and he was flagged for a pass interference penalty. Team sources tell Walter Football that Henderson “…is protecting himself and trying not to get hurt.”
