Jake Rudock was drafted in the 6th round, 191st overall of the 2016 draft. Jake started his rookie season on the practice squad until he was promoted on the Lions active roster on November 23, 2016. He was listed as the third-string quarterback behind Matthew Stafford and Dan Orlovsky. At the end of the 2016 season, the Lions parted ways with Orlovsky and Rudock was expected to back up Stafford in the 2017 season.
Jake Rudock made his NFL debut in 2017 throwing for 24 yards with one interception. His NFL career isn’t over as he has two great quarterbacks ahead of him to guide/coach him to be a better player.
