NFL Draft Day 2: Steelers Snag A Pair Of Cowboys

They drafted quarterback Mason Rudolph from Oklahoma State with the 76th overall pick in the third-round. I thought he was going to go in the late first-round or the early second-round.

Get unlimited access to everything orange and black.

. The physical Nittany Lions defensive back was drafted by Pittsburgh in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft on Saturday. He could be groomed as the replacement for Roethlisberger, who is 36 years old.

"It's a disappointing development for the Bengals, who expressed a ton of interest in Rudolph, a 6'5", 235 pound-pound quarterback who fits well in the offense. Does Roethlisberger have one more championship run left in him?

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. But some of his more memorable moments came as a junior in two contests that would reshape the 2016 season for Penn State. Rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster caught 58 passes for 917 yards.

Rudolph went on to lead the nation in passing yards with 4,904.

A native of Rock Hill, South Carolina, Rudolph is the winningest quarterback in OSU history.

He's the fourth OSU quarterback to be drafted into the National Football League, joining Brandon Weeden, Zac Robinson and Rusty Hilger.

Washington and Rudolph demonstrated a remarkable rapport in college, the former racking up 1,549 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns in 2017, and they will hope that continues once Roethlisberger hangs up the cleats.

He's the first OSU receiver drafted since Justin Blackmon.

Rudolph was projected as a fringe first round draft pick whose status as an Air Raid quarterback would limit his appeal.
