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

With the 76th pick, the Steelers took Washington's quarterback, Mason Rudolph, keeping the record-setting duo together. Defensive tackle Joshua Frazier became the 12th former Crimson Tide player off the board when he was selected by the by the Pittsburgh Steelers with the No. 246 pick overall in the seventh round of the NFL Draft on Saturday. Barkley was widely considered the best overall player in the draft, but the Cleveland Browns selected Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield with the top pick.

Pittsburgh pulled in two big physical safeties in this draft with Terrell Edmunds in the first round.

Penn State football alumnus Marcus Allen has landed in the NFL.

"It's not Ben's job to teach me anything". The pair were together for four years with the Cowboys, and Washington caught 1,549 yards of Rudolph's 4,904 that he threw for during the 2017 season.

The knife-wielding man attacked students near a secondary school in the Shaanxi province as they were heading home for the day. One, since China has strict gun control laws, knives are the preferred weapon in mass attacks like this.

The Steelers still see plenty of upside in Rudolph, though, and he could be the heir apparent for Roethlisberger when he retires. Rudolph set a school record for passing yards in a half, Washington went over 100 yards receiving and they both sat the final 1½ quarters in a 38-point thrashing of the University of Pittsburgh.

Washington gives the AFC North champions a boost at the wide receiver position just a day after they traded Martavis Bryant to Oakland.

Washington and Rudolph have played before on Heinz Field, their future home. Washington does not have the same speed that Bryant or Smith-Schuster possesses, but he may be able to develop into a possession receiver who can complement the other speedsters the Steelers have at wide receiver. He averaged 19.8 yards per reception during his college career. He made 15 tackles as a senior including 2.5 for loss.
