Package deal: Rudolph, Washington heading to Pittsburgh

NFL Draft 2018: Steelers select potential Ben Roethlisberger successor Mason Rudolph

Rudolph, who originally hoped to hear his name on the draft's first night, went with the 12th pick of the third round (76th overall) when Pittsburgh traded with the Seattle Seahawks to move up for him.

Oklahoma State Wide Receiver and Biletnikoff victor, James Washington, was the first in-state product drafted in the second round on day two of the National Football League draft.

Allen, a hard-hitting safety was the 148th overall pick.

In the fifth round, the Steelers selected Penn State Safety Marcus Allen and North Carolina State Running back Jaylen Samuels.

Pittsburgh has had little success with backups for Big Ben, with another Oklahoma product, Landry Jones, never approaching the Roethlisberger level.

Flowers was a four-year starter for the Cowboys and was given the Leslie O'Neal Award at the end of last season as OSU's best defensive player. That's highly unlikely for reasons other than injury in Pittsburgh, which should leave plenty of time for Rudolph to learn about the pro game.

May's Selection of games is definitely solid, and many are saying it is one of the best months the service has offered. Then, starting on May 16, Xbox 360 will also receive Vanquish , the fast-action sliding cover shooter.

Rudolph was one of the most productive quarterbacks in college football throughout his career, leading the nation with 4,904 passing yards in 2017 to go with his 37 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Washington and Rudolph have played before on Heinz Field, their future home. The team is hoping their 2018 second round pick will turn into half the gem that JuJu Smith-Schuster became a year ago.

Bryant was third among Steelers with 605 receiving yards on 50 catches last season.

The 6-foot Washington can line up both in the slot and on the outside and can get downfield.

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