After signing an undrafted free agent contract with the New England Patriots on April 30, Jake Julien is the next Eagles player to receive a shot in the NFL.
The 11th grader who had switched from soccer to football took a chance in 2021 by returning to Eastern Michigan for his graduation senior season. He received an extra year of eligibility because the COVID-19 epidemic caused the 2020 season to be reduced to six games.
The Ottawa RedBlacks selected the Barrie, Ontario native with the 31st overall pick in the fourth round of the 2021 CFL Draft. After being selected, he decided to stay at Ypsilanti for the 2021 season in an effort to improve his chances of playing in the NFL.
Julien began the season on the Ray Guy award watch list in addition to being selected to the fourth team preseason All-American and first-team preseason All-Mid-American conference by Phil Steele’s College Football Preview.
Julien performed well in his final season with the Eagles, earning a second-team All-Mid-American selection after having 51 punts go for 2,343 yards, while not making the first-team All-MAC team.
He had career highs in fair catches (17), punts over 50 yards (14), and the longest punt (average yards per punt of 45.9). (78).
Julien was also chosen for the All-MAC team in 2018, in addition to the 2021 selection. A total of seven MAC-West Division special teams player of the week awards went to him. His performance at Eastern Michigan earned him a spot in the January 8–12 College Gridiron Showcase.
