If you love doing an NFL Mock Draft, you'll need to add Jacob Eason to your list of potential picks. The Washington Huskies quarterback just announced today that he would forego his final year and enter the 2020 NFL Draft.
Jacob Eason started as a freshman at Georgia, but lost the starting job to Jake Fromm after suffering an injury in his sophomore year. After he transferred to Washington (near his home in Lake Stevens, WA.) and sat out the 2018 season, Eason went on to win the starting job as QB for the Huskies in 2019.
I have some doubts about whether Eason should skip his senior year, but he had solid numbers for the Huskies this season, and remember – he was a five-star recruit.
Jacob Eason took time to say thanks to the Husky Nation, and Georgia, on his Twitter account.
Eason completed just over 64% of his passes and had some fantastic games, including a 289-yard outing in a loss to Oregon. Overall, Eason threw for 3,132 yards with 23 touchdowns and only eight picks. At 6'6" and 227 pounds, high accuracy with a 143.9 RTG, Eason should fit well in the NFL ranks.
It will be interesting to see how the NFL Mock Drafts are adjusted to include Jacob Eason. Alongside the likes of Joe Burrow, Tua Tagovailoa, Jordan Love, and Justin Herbert, Round 1 has become a bit more interesting.
