New Mock Draft Has Georgia QB Jake Fromm Going No. 1

first_img The Georgia quarterback has led the team to two straight SEC East titles, as well as the College Football Playoff as a freshman.As for Fromm’s potential destination, the Dolphins are currently expected to go through a rebuilding year. They hired first-year head coach Brian Flores, signed journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick in the off-season and traded for Rosen.Suffice it to say, it’s not too hard to believe that the Dolphins will want to make a big investment at the quarterback position in 2020.[CBS Sports] Jake From huddled up with his teammates before the National Championship game.ATLANTA, GA – JANUARY 08: Jake Fromm #11 of the Georgia Bulldogs huddles with his teammates before the start of the game against the Alabama Crimson Tide in the CFP National Championship presented by AT&T at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on January 8, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia. (Photo by Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images)The 2020 NFL Draft is widely viewed as having a glut of quarterbacks. With such stars as Tua Tagovailoa, Jalen Hurts, Justin Herbert, and Jacob Eason all on the radar, one quarterback appears to have set himself apart from the crowd.In a new mock draft from CBS Sports analyst Will Brinson, Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm is picked to go No. 1 overall to the Miami Dolphins. Brinson explained that while the Dolphins invested in Josh Rosen, it won’t prevent them from taking a quarterback.The Dolphins traded for Josh Rosen during the 2019 NFL Draft, and I think/hope he’ll work out in Miami, but I ultimately see a QB going first overall and Rosen wouldn’t prohibit them from taking someone they believe in like Fromm.Such a selection would make Fromm the first Georgia quarterback since Matthew Stafford to go first overall. He would also be only the fifth member of the Bulldogs to go No. 1 overall in draft history.Fromm has started 29 straight games for Georgia since his freshman season. In that span he has thrown for 5,376 yards, 54 touchdowns, only 13 interceptions, and completed 64.9-percent of his passes.last_img read more

Make trespassing a criminal offence to stop travellers moving onto private land

A police officer was bitten by a dog as cops evicted a group of travellers and their caravans from an abandoned leisure centre in West London earlier this monthCredit:Get West London/BPM Media Caravans parked on Cranleigh Common in Surrey Mr Sharma, who ordered the consultation on the law which closed several weeks ago, said: “My view is clear – the law needs strengthening and trespass needs to be made a criminal offence.“This is the case in the Republic of Ireland and we need this change here. It will deter illegal encampments as the individuals concerned will understand they will face criminal law sanctions, rather than civil ones, right from the start.” Government officials have admitted that since 2010 that the number of traveller caravans on authorised sites has increased.A Housing department spokesman said: “The vast majority of the travelling community are decent and law-abiding people, but we are very concerned about unauthorised traveller encampments and some of the anti-social behaviour they can give rise to.“The rule of law must be applied and we are committed to tackling illegal behaviours wherever they occur. We have consulted on the effectiveness of enforcement powers and we are considering the responses before deciding on next steps.” Dozens of Conservative MPs including several former Cabinet ministers are demanding that the Government makes trespassing a criminal offence to stop travellers moving onto private land.The MPs, led by Mark Francois and John Baron, have written to Theresa May and Housing Secretary James Brokenshire urging them to make “acts of deliberate trespass a criminal offence”.They say that people “have a right to expect that the law should be applied equally and fairly to all and they want to see the authorities given additional powers to deal with unauthorised encampments, which are an increasing problem, particularly in the spring and summer months”.The news has emerged days after a police force in Surrey failed to take action to remove a group of travellers who had set up camp illegally in a park in Thames Ditton.The group were eventually evicted by the local council after three days, but left behind significant damage and mess, including “rutted” football pitches from drag racing cars, two dogs, and a water-logged cricket pitch, forcing this weekend’s games to be cancelled.The council also hired a specialist cleaning company to carry out a “cleanse” of the the park’s playground following their stay.  Paul Gregory, 42, a Long Ditton resident who lives opposite the park, agrees with the proposals to criminalise trespass.He said: “It would mean the police could actually do something about it and confront the issue straight away, rather than the long-winded civil process. “There are double-standards to the way travellers are treated and what they are able to get away with, compared to ordinary citizens. A friend of mine recently got fined £80 for dropping some litter on the ground in that park, but travellers can come and do what they like without facing the consequences.”Some 59 Tory MPs – nearly a third of the backbench Conservative party – have signed the letter include former Cabinet ministers John Whittingdale, Sir Michael Fallon and Priti Patel and submitted it to a Government consultation on travellers.The MPs said the new criminal power “would provide a timely method of dealing with unauthorised encampments on private or public land, in contrast to the current powers which are either very limited in scope or require often time consuming recourse to the courts”.The group of MPs met with James Brokenshire, the Housing secretary, days before Parliament broke up for its summer recess last month.The proposal to criminalise trespass was first mooted by the Tories in the party’s 2010 general election manifesto.The MPs’ call has also been backed by Alok Sharma, a senior Work and Pensions minister and a Housing minister until January this year, in his capacity as a MP for Reading West.Earlier this he launched a petition on tackling illegal encampments calling for a change in the law to make trespass a criminal offence.The petition said that “the residents of Berkshire have suffered an intolerable imposition from an increasing number of unauthorised encampments. “The Petitioners therefore urge the Government to introduce legislation to make trespass a criminal offence. “This will strengthen the powers used by the police to deal with illegal encampments, in addition to those already available under the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994.” Caravans parked on Cranleigh Common in SurreyCredit:BPM Media A police officer was bitten by a dog as cops evicted a group of travellers and their caravans from an abandoned leisure centre in West London earlier this month Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?
