Rudock started in 25 of 26 games for the Hawkeyes in 2013 and 2014 but it appeared that head coach Kirk Ferentz was set on anointing C.J. Beathard as the new starter for the 2015 season. Rudock transferred for his final season of eligibility.
He wound up at Michigan, playing on Jim Harbaugh’s first Wolverines team in 2015 and earned the starting job pretty quickly.
Rudock was selected in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Lions. He’s bounced around from practice squad to active roster over the last three seasons in the league.
