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

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin and general manager Kevin Colbert were both among the contingent the team sent to Stillwater for OSU's Pro Day, where Washington improved on some of his combine numbers. While the situation seemed smoothed over by the end of the season, with Bryant playing a big role in the team's playoff loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, the writing was on the wall for Bryant's departure. Pittsburgh traded away its No. 2 receiver in Martavis Bryant to Oakland on Thursday night.

With their final pick in the 7th round, the Steelers selected DT Joshua Frazier. After all, Big Ben was on the fence before last season started.

Washington has the tools to be one of the more explosive wide receivers to emerge from this draft class, and Rudolph should at least help him develop on the practice field. I thought he was going to go in the late first-round or the early second-round.

Mason Rudolph completed 65.0% of his passes for 4,904 yards 37 touchdown and nine interceptions. He and Taylor Moton - a 2017 second-round draft pick by the Carolina Panthers - anchored a Broncos offensive line that allowed just 16 sacks all season.

Instead, the Steelers must have had a notion the Bengals wanted Rudolph or another quarterback and did whatever it took to get in front of the Bengals' two picks.

Rudolph, though, will have time to learn under Roethlisberger and, when he does see the field, will be able to throw to a familiar target. Rudolph, on the other hand, will step into the role of understudy to Steeler legend Ben Roethlisberger. The Cowboys should have more draft picks on Saturday in rounds 4-7, including receiver Marcell Ateman.
