  • OSU's James Washington, Mason Rudolph sticking together with Steelers

It is possible that Rudolph will be the Pittsburgh Steelers starting quarterback by the 2020 season. He could be groomed as the replacement for Roethlisberger, who is 36 years old.

Western Michigan's Chukwuma Okorafor became the Broncos' third offensive lineman drafted in the past three years Friday, when the Pittsburgh Steelers selected the senior tackle in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

The question is: How long will it take for Mason Rudolph to receive his first start with the Pittsburgh Steelers?

"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.




Washington should combine with Brown and second-year receiver Juju Smith-Schuster to form one of the most dynamic receiving corps in the league. But some of his more memorable moments came as a junior in two contests that would reshape the 2016 season for Penn State.

But those quibbles were considered to be relatively minor after the Lions safety posted a 37-inch vertical leap at the National Football League scouting combine and followed that up by posting a reported 4.59-second time in the 40-yard dash at Penn State's pro day in late March. Washington caught five passes for 124 yards.

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

Day 3 of the NFL Draft wraps up Saturday. An underrecruited prospect, Washington produced three consecutive 1,000 yard seasons and entered the draft as the most accomplished receiver in the pool.
