Go for Jake Fromm in the 2020 Draft. #contest

4 comments

Edited: Mar 28

It is going to be a most somber day when the Saints have to move on from Drew Brees, and we pray that his successor can keep the Golden Age of New Orleans Saints Football alive. Many do believe that Teddy Bridgewater is the future. Saints traded a 3rd round pick for him just days away from kickoff, and also resigned him to a one-year deal (and will likely resign him next off-season). But it should not mean by any stretch of the imagination we are set. We should draft a QB to compete with Teddy for the starting job, and it needs to be a first rounder. Enter Georgia Bulldogs QB Jake Fromm. He is projected to enter the NFL Draft in 2020, along with Tua from Bama & Justin Herbert from Oregon, and he is in my opinion the real successor to Drew. In the film I have looked at so far, he has a lot of boxes checked off, good/great arm, above average mobility, good footwork, winner, good decision making, and tough competitor. I know Sean has clamored about Teddy and sees him as the successor, but there isn't a lot of options to choose from at the moment, and he can change his mind watching Fromm highlights.

It wasn't in the directions but I since added it. Use the hashtag #Contest in your title.

Don't know if teddy will resign if he isn't the starter next year... He wants to start and not have much for competition. (Why he almost went to the dolphins)

I've been trying to tell people Bridgewater is signing a new deal with the Saints after 2019 and he is the starter in 2020. He is from Miami. He didn't pass up playing in his hometown AND a bigger pay day to stay the backup in New Orleans for a few more years. He has to have had some assurances from the front office that it's his team in 2020.

He'll resign, but Sean isn't just going to let him have the job without someone competing for it. But also this, I'm not sold on Teddy being the future for the Saints. I think he's got certain intangibles (arm strength, mobility, accuracy [to an extent]), but it comes down to mentality. I believe he can get too conservative.

  • Saints vs Rams Predictions anyone? I feel as it will be mostly an offensive battle, but looking to see if we correct some of our week one mistakes with play calls, and also looking to see if Trey can dominate on the edge again as he did last week over davenport. Brees is going to be on fire with MT as this is a "Revenge" game after all. Yet it is only week 2 so nothing to go crazy over and we need to come out of this game healthy, and with a big ol 2-0 heading into next week. #Nutz4Lutz
  • So, we are getting ever closer to the 2019 season. What are everyone's honest thoughts on what the Saints will do in 2019? Personally I don't see us winning 13 games this year as we have a tough looking schedule. I see 11/12 wins, we will still win the NFC south as I don't think any of the other teams have improved enough. 12 wins could still give us home field advantage and if we get that again this year then for me the Superbowl is very much within our grasp. Roll on September!!
  • Whenever the NFL Draft comes around, there are certainties in life: 1. Saints are going to trade up 2. Saints will not address a position fans believe they really should address 3. Saints will screw up a linebacker pick 4. Saints will always have at least 1 UDFA RB & WR. One of those UDFA players that I am very curious about is Nebraska RB Devine Ozigbo. When doing a mock draft, he was often a common player that would I look up, and consider drafting as a RB3. When tracking Day 3, I saw his name still available as it went along, and just like that... the draft ended and he was still there. As soon as I saw it, I was hoping Saints would manage to get him as an UDFA (along with several others), and we did. When pondering why he became an UDFA, I looked at his film, and dug a little deeper into his scouting report. His key weaknesses were that he had not so good long speed, and had rather bad games against quality opponents (such as vs. Michigan St. and vs. Iowa), but his positives were that: he was proficient in pass pro, had good power, very little tread, had some receiving ability, and was very good in short yardage. Perhaps he'll be the one that could maybe beat out Dwayne Washington, or at least perform well enough to create a RB4.
