ESPN's Mel Kiper says Michigan QB Jake Rudock could slot into Rds. 6-7.
And you thought you'd seen the last of Rudock. The 6-foot-3, 208-pounder, who fell out favor at Iowa, transferred to Michigan for his last year of eligibility and went on to throw for 3,017 yards, 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He led the Big Ten in completion percentage (64.0) and was second in overall passer rating (141.5). Rudock has a noodle arm and a wiry frame, but he's got smarts, NFL toughness and a stamp of approval from both Kirk Ferentz and Jim Harbaugh, which goes a long way in NFL circles. Rudock is set to play in the upcoming Shrine Game. "Rudock, I like what he did, he was solid most of the year throughout the campaign for Jim (Harbaugh), but I’m thinking more a late rounder, sixth/seventh round," Kiper said. "The same thing we talked about with Brandon Doughty coming out of Western Kentucky, same thing we talked about with Jake Coker coming out of Alabama, a late-round type possibility."
