Evaluating the Pittsburgh Steelers 2018 draft class

Jones never quite elevated to the lofty expectations but there is hope the Rudolph could be the long term solution in a post-Roethlisberger Pittsburgh. The Steelers selected former Cowboy quarterback, Mason Rudolph with the 76th overall 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.

The New York Giants selected Whitehall High School and Penn State product Saquon Barkley with the second overall pick. The 36-year-old veteran said he plans to return in 2018, but he seems to be making that decision on a year-by-year basis.

The Pittsburgh Steelers sent six representatives to Oklahoma State's Pro Day last month.

Princess Charlotte flashes royal wave as she meets her baby brother
Years ago, the arrival of a new prince would mean he'd frog-leap over his older sister in the line of succession to the throne. George, who was much more stoic in front of the crowd than Charlotte, clearly takes his role as older brother seriously.

Oklahoma State scored touchdowns on all seven possessions of the first half in a 59-21 win over Pittsburgh, with Rudolph throwing for 497 yards in a little more than two quarters. Rudolph connected with Washington five times for 124 yards in the victory. Despite playing alongside Washington and a plethora of talent his senior season, Ateman still recorded 1,049 receiving yards and eight touchdowns. The Rock Hill, South Carolina, native broke most of OSU's passing records in the process.

Rudolph was the sixth QB selected in the 2018 draft.

The 6-foot-3, 321-pound defensive tackle surprised some when he was invited to the NFL Combine in March.

Rudolph could be a possible replacement for Ben Roethlisberger, the Steelers' two-time Super Bowl champion gunslinger. Rudolph's second-leading receiver, Marcell Ateman, will head to the West Coast.
