Georgia’s Jake Fromm and Oregon’s Justin Herbert have opportunities to impress scouts this weekend with conference championship game matchups against LSU and Utah
The Miami Dolphins chances of securing the No. 1 pick in the 2020 draft remain alive, although have dropped after winning three of their last five games. Still, the 3-9 Dolphins, who would pick fourth overall if the season ended today, figure to at least have a high selection or could use their multitude of picks to trade up, which means they still could have their pick of one of the elite quarterbacks in what should be a deep QB class.
The biggest mystery of the draft now becomes Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa, who had hip surgery last month.
Here is an update on some of the higher ranked quarterbacks in the class:
Joe Burrow, LSU (projected 1st round): Burrow and LSU completed an undefeated regular season with a convincing 50-7 victory over Texas A&M and draft hopeful Kellen Mond. Burrow was 23 of 32 for 362 yards and three TDs. The projected No. 1 pick leads the country in completion percentage (.783) and is second and passing yards (4,366). He has 44 TD passes and six interceptions.
Justin Herbert, Oregon (projected 1st round): Herbert has had a couple of subpar weeks. He followed up his rough performance at Arizona State with 174 yards on 18 of 30 passing in a victory over Oregon State. He is completing .675 percent of his throws for 3,140 yards 31 TDs and five interceptions. He will have a chance on a big stage Friday when Oregon plays Utah in the Pac-12 championship game.
Jake Fromm, Georgia (projected 1-2 round): Fromm has gone four consecutive games completing fewer than half his passes. He was 14 of 29 for 254 yards in an easy victory over Georgia Tech. He tossed four TD passes without an interception giving him 21 scoring passes and just three picks on the year. He will be in the spotlight once again Saturday when Georgia faces LSU and Burrow in the SEC title game.
Others to watch: Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama, (projected 1st round), Jacob Eason, Washington (projected 1-2), K.J. Costello, Stanford (projected 2-4), Jordan Love, Utah State (projected 2-4), Kellen Mond, Texas A&M (projected 2-4), Steven Montez, Colorado (projected 2-4), Jalen Hurts, Oklahoma (projected 3-5).
