Well no name called at the Draft, but Jake will get his shot with the Bengals as an undrafted free agent. He should have a decent shot at the roster or a practice squad spot

Will he though? I immediately went to their Facebook page and they are all gushing about another QB, that he's the right fit etc. I guess I was hoping for more but I guess practice squad is good too.

A very detailed and personal article from a local Buffalo paper.

Great start for Jake in rookie minicamp!

Bengals rookie mini-camp: Undrafted QB Dolegala shows off arm strength, Finley struggles
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Right off the bat let's get one thing clear that it was only day one of rookie mini-camp for the Bengals on Friday, but of the two quarterbacks participating the one who went undrafted looked far better than the one who got picked.

Undrafted Jake Dolegala showed off a powerful and accurate arm during 7-on-7 drills, while fourth-round pick Ryan Finley struggled not only with accuracy during those drills, but also during positional passing drills, and at times showed very poor arm strength and threw numerous wobbly passes.
Dolegala ripped several throws into tight windows on Friday and looked impressive.

"I threw the ball well today," said Dolegala. "Once I get the play and know what I'm doing the reads are coming to me in stride and with more reps I'm going to get better."

Part of the reason he went undrafted is because the competition level he faced in college was understandably questioned by NFL scouts.

Even Dolegala said he understood that, too, but that none of it matters now.

"We're all on the same level now," said Dolegala. "It doesn't matter where I played and who I played. Obviously that hurt in the draft, but I'm here now and I feel like I've got a great opportunity. I belong here."

Also noticed Jake traded in his CCSU #9 jersey for Bengals #7 - that Boomer Esiason's former jersey number!

Last Bengals player to wear #9 was Carson Palmer. (2003-2010)

Stepping into some big shoes in Cincinnati.
