Jake Rudock’s one year at Michigan after transferring from Iowa was very successful. He had his best statistical season, throwing for 3,017 yards on 64-percent completions with 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions, and led Jim Harbaugh’s first UM team to a 10-3 record. Many UM fans will have the opportunity to keep rooting for Rudock in the pros, as he was just drafted by the Detroit Lions in the sixth round.

Rudock wasn’t on many draft radars heading into 2015. After a year at Michigan, he’ll be backing up Matthew Stafford.
Jake Rudock just got drafted. Harbaugh is a wizard.

Rudock is the second Michigan player to go to the home-state Lions, joining third round pick Graham Glasglow.
