Jake Fromm has committed to play for the Georgia Bulldogs. Following that, the Buffalo Bills selected Fromm in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Tate Martell: Originally committed to the Ohio State Buckeyes before transferring to the Miami Hurricanes. The Pittsburgh Steelers picked Martell in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
No one from the Kansas City Chiefs has played in the NFL. But they do have two first-round picks in this year's draft: quarterback Patrick Mahomes and wide receiver Chris Conley.
The only current quarterback with a Super Bowl win is Ben Roethlisberger. He did it with the Steelers back in 2015 after losing his starting job to Mason Rudolph in 2014. Before that, he lost his job to Tommy Maddox in 2004. Before that, he was just another guy on the roster who could throw the ball.
Big Ben also has two MVP awards and three NFL Championships to his name. Even if you exclude the latter two, he's still got more than most players ever get to experience in a career.
He's been named to the Pro Bowl on eight occasions. And he's already got a spot in the Hall of Fame locked up after just four years as a starter.
Fromm has had a lot of success in college football. He and fellow season 1 subject Martell became the first to play in a College Football Playoff game, with Martell's Buckeyes making the Cotton Bowl in December 2017 (but Martell not participating) and Fromm starting as quarterback for Georgia three days later in the 2018 Rose Bowl.
They also were the first to play in a regular-season game. On September 19, 2015, they faced off at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Ohio State won that game 27-7. Martell completed 3 of 6 passes for 44 yards while rushing for 22 yards on five carries. Fromm went 2 of 4 for 20 yards while rushing for 14 yards.
He played his first full game as a Buckeye on November 24, 2015, when Urban Meyer's team lost to Michigan State 28-27 in East Lansing. Fromm went 18 of 33 for 276 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. He also ran for a touchdown.
In 2016, he started all 13 games for Ohio State and led them to a 12-1 record and their third national championship in four years. He finished the year with 3,036 passing yards, 26 touchdowns, and nine interceptions while running for six more scores. He also had 181 rushing yards and a touchdown.
After graduating from high school early, Martell decided to stay at Ohio State for one more season under coach Meyer.
Justin Fields is the fourth quarterback in Ohio State history to be drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft, following Don Scott in 1941, Art Schlicter in 1982, and Dwayne Haskins in 2019. He was selected eighth by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Fields started seven games for the Buckeyes in 2018 after Dwayne Haskins was lost for the season due to a shoulder injury. The 2017 Heisman Trophy winner finished his OSU career with 15,283 yards passing and 102 touchdowns against only 17 interceptions. He entered the NFL draft ranked No. 1 on ESPN's board.
In his only season as a starter, Fields led OSU to a 9-3 record and its third College Football Playoff appearance. The Buckeyes defeated Georgia in the opener before losing to Alabama in the semifinals. Florida State was slated to play Oklahoma in the national championship game but was hit with NCAA sanctions and banned from the playoff, so LSU played instead. Ohio State beat LSU 38-28 to claim its first national title since 2002.
The Buckeyes' offense was considered one of the best in college football last year when they scored 45 or more points eight times. Fields used his mobility to keep defenses off balance while completing 69 percent of his passes for 3,742 yards and 36 touchdowns against just nine picks. He also ran for six scores.

Jake Browning of the University of Washington has also joined the NFL since then. Following a promising start to his collegiate career, the quarterback needed shoulder surgery, which hampered his passing skills. He was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Minnesota Vikings.
Washington has the highest average draft position (71.3) among states that have produced at least 15 NFL quarterbacks, with 16 QBs taken in the NFL draft (not counting the supplemental draft).
Despite starting only one season at quarterback at Texas A&M in his senior year, Tannehill was selected by the Miami Dolphins with the eighth overall choice in the 2012 NFL Draft. In his debut season, he started all 16 games. He missed the 2017 season due to MCL and ACL tears in his left knee. After missing most of 2018 rehabilitating that injury, the Dolphins released Tannehill on March 12, 2019.
Tannehill played high school football in Houston for Jesuit College Preparatory School. As a freshman, he led the team to a 10-1 record and the No. 3 ranking in the country. As a sophomore, he helped lead the team to its first undefeated regular season (11-0) and its first No. 1 ranking in the nation. As a junior, he passed for 2,414 yards with 26 touchdowns against eight interceptions while completing 62 percent of his passes. As a senior, he threw for 3,192 yards with 36 touchdowns vs. 11 interceptions while completing 63 percent of his passes.
After his successful college career, Tannehill signed with the Dolphins as their top pick (8th overall). He is expected to be the franchise's new starter after replacing Ryan Tannehill who was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in the first round (10th overall).
In 2011, Tannehill appeared in ten games as a true freshman, starting nine of them.
Many individuals were drafted as quarterbacks but never made it into an NFL depth chart. They were on the list. Some athletes, like as Warren Moon, were undrafted but went on to play in the NFL. They were also included on the list.
Willie Thrower became the league's third black quarterback in 1953 when he threw eight passes in one game for the Bears (and did not record a rushing attempt or a reception). Charlie "Choo Choo" Brackins was signed by the Green Bay Packers two years later, marking another another milestone.
