Pittsburgh Steelers Draft OK State's Rudolph and Washington

Pittsburgh Steelers Draft OK State's Rudolph and Washington

A year later, Fichtner stood in the same place, in front of the same podium, albeit with the new title of offensive coordinator, and didn't debunk the thought that they traded up to draft Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph in the third round of Friday's NFL Draft as Roethlisberger's eventual replacement. When Rudolph becomes the starter one day, he will be the Pittsburgh Steelers starter for a very long time.

Instead, the Steelers must have had a notion the Bengals wanted Rudolph or another quarterback and did whatever it took to get in front of the Bengals' two picks. But the veteran is already 36 years old, and this is probably his final season anyway.

Roethlisberger is listed at 6-foot-5, 240 pounds, while Rudolph is 6-5 and 235.




Okorafor spent his first two seasons at right tackle before moving to left tackle in 2016, helping the Broncos win their first Mid-American Conference championship since 1988 before making an appearance in the Cotton Bowl.

Both players were clearly on Pittsburgh's radar throughout the process.

And the duo already made a first impression to anyone paying attention to the game at Heinz Field on September 16. Washington caught five passes for 124 yards. He the first OSU quarterback selected in an National Football League draft since Brandon Weeden was taken in the first round in 2012. The Rock Hill, South Carolina, native broke most of OSU's passing records in the process. An underrecruited prospect, Washington produced three consecutive 1,000 yard seasons and entered the draft as the most accomplished receiver in the pool. He finished his OSU career with 4,462 receiving yards, most in Cowboy history.
