Steelers Trade Up for QB Mason Rudolph

  • The Latest Titans trade up to take Harold Landry

Joshua Frazier went to the Pittsburgh Steelers with the 28th pick in the seventh round.

Rudolph could be a possible replacement for Ben Roethlisberger, the Steelers' two-time Super Bowl champion gunslinger. "It's my job to learn", said Rudolph, who added he dreamed of becoming a Steeler.

And Rudolph is coming off four solid years with OK State, improving in every single one of them. For the Steelers, he'll probably slot in as Roethlisberger's backup.

Until Rudolph, who was not on hand.

The question is: How long will it take for Mason Rudolph to receive his first start with the Pittsburgh Steelers? Does Roethlisberger have one more championship run left in him?

Washington gives the AFC North champions a boost at the wide receiver position just a day after they traded Martavis Bryant to Oakland. He caught five passes for 124 yards when Oklahoma State blew out Pitt 59-21 last September.

The 6-4, 227-pound Rudolph threw for 4,904 yards with 37 touchdowns and nine interceptions in his senior season.

Allen is the second safety selected by the Steelers in the draft. Smith-Schuster's rapid development made the talented but enigmatic Bryant expendable.

At N.C. State, Samuels set the school record with 202 career receptions and was second in school history with 47 touchdowns, including 19 as a receiver.

The Steelers wrapped up day 2 by bolstering their offensive line selecting tackle Chukwuma Okorafor from Western Michigan.

Washington's National Football League stock seemed to peak during an impressive performance in preparation for the Senior Bowl in January, with many draft analysts penciling him into the first round and near the top of the list of receivers in the class.
