Steelers trade for No. 76 pick, select QB Mason Rudolph

Steelers traded up with the Seahawks to select Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph with the No. 76 overall pick in the 2018 National Football League draft. The receiver was a three star recruit out of college.

With the 76th pick in the 2018 #NFLDraft, we have selected QB Mason Rudolph.

Rudolph is very familiar with Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, who went to the Browns with the No. 1 overall pick.

"I had no clue this was in the works", Rudolph said. "I am hopeful that Ben is going to commit and play about four, five, six more years".

"I knew it as soon as I got selected, like, I can't wait, it'll be fun", Rudolph said. The two-time Super Bowl victor told teammates after the Steelers fell to Jacksonville in the divisional round of the playoffs he expects to play at least three more years. "It'd be great for me, because he's a guy that's going to be bad hard to replace and if it takes three guys in competition to replace him someday, so be it".

The addition of Rudolph puts Josh Dobbs and Landry Jones on notice that their days are numbered in Pittsburgh.

He joins an impressive group of Steelers receivers in Antonio Bell and 2017 first round draft pick Juju Smith-Schuster. "I'll come in and work my butt off to learn the system".

Pittsburgh picked Western Michigan offensive tackle Chukwuma Okorafora with their second third-round selection. He's much more polished than either of those guys were upon being drafted. Pittsburgh has two picks in the fifth and one in the seventh.
