ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Offensive line depth and receiver remain two of the Buffalo Bills most pressing needs with five picks spread over the final four rounds of the National Football League draft.

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.

Rudolph becomes the 121st player in OSU history to be selected in an National Football League draft, and the 23rd draft pick under Mike Gundy.

Rudolph left the Cowboys as the program's all-time winningest quarterback with a 32-9 record.

He joins Brandon Weeden, Zac Robinson and Rusty Hilger as the only OSU quarterbacks to be drafted into the NFL.

Last season, he completed 65.0 percent of his passes for 4,904 yards, 37 touchdowns and nine interceptions, while also rushing for nine scores.

For his efforts during his senior season, Rudolph was named the victor of the 2017 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award and received second-team All-America honors from the American Football Coaches Association.

A native of Stamford, Texas, Washington wrapped his career by winning the Biletnikoff Award as the nation's best wide receiver while being selected as a unanimous first team All-American.

Pittsburgh traded up from 79 to 76 to select Rudolph, who had been talked about as a player who could sneak into the first round after a stellar career at Oklahoma State.

Rudolph could be a possible replacement for Ben Roethlisberger, the Steelers' two-time Super Bowl champion gunslinger.
