Mason Rudolph joins James Washington with Pittsburgh Steelers in third round

Mason Rudolph joins James Washington with Pittsburgh Steelers in third round

The Pittsburgh Steelers appear to have found Ben Roethlisberger's successor after selecting Mason Rudolph in the third round of the NFL Draft. Not yet 21 years old, Okorafor is a probable multi-year project.

The Pittsburgh Steelers called Washington's name with the 60th pick.

The Steelers selected OSU receiver and Biletnikoff Award victor James Washington with the 60th overall pick nearing the end of the second round of the NFL Draft on Friday. He the first OSU quarterback selected in an National Football League draft since Brandon Weeden was taken in the first round in 2012. He finished his OSU career with 4,462 receiving yards, most in Cowboy history.

Comcast Formalizes $30.7 Billion Bid for Sky
Sky and Disney have both offered the United Kingdom government assurances that both would protect the independence of Sky News. In late 2016 , Fox offered to shell out $16 billion to buy the remainder of Sky it doesn't already own.

As for Rudolph himself, he'll have a chance to learn from Roethlisberger and ease his way in to an offense that features some of the most explosive playmakers in the NFL.

In other words: Whether Rudolph is asked to step in during the 2018 season or receives time on the sidelines, he'll be surrounded by nearly unparalleled talent. We can argue whether the Steelers made the right selection when they picked Virginia Tech's Terrell Edmunds in the first round of the draft Thursday night, but the position made sense.
