Penn State S Marcus Allen selected by Steelers in 2018 NFL Draft

  • Package deal: Rudolph, Washington heading to Pittsburgh

We saw the run on quarterbacks dry up on day two - only one quarterback was taken as we saw the Steelers draft the player they believe may be their signal caller of the future in Mason Rudolph. 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.

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

On Thursday, the Steelers traded away one of their top receivers, Martavis Bryant, leaving room for Washington to fill an immediate void.

The 6-4, 227-pound Rudolph threw for 4,904 yards with 37 touchdowns and nine interceptions in his senior season.

Sabres win NHL Draft Lottery to secure first overall pick
The Sabres have picked first overall twice previously taking Pierre Turgeon in 1987 and selecting Gilbert Perreault in 1970. The 18-year-old has already drawn comparisons to Ottawa Senators captain Erik Karlsson and Hall of Famer Nicklas Lidstrom .


Early projections by pro scouts favor Allen - who was credited with forcing 5 fumbles over his final 3 seasons at Penn State - as a downhill run stopper in the National Football League, be it as a box-hovering safety, a smallish linebacker or rover type. Former Pitt wide receiver and returner Quadree Henderson also signed a free agent deal with the Steelers.

"You see him get better each year and every time he's playing", Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak told reporters after selecting Okorafor. Then again, the Steelers may elect to have him serve as their third-stringer so they can develop him a little more slowly.

Rudolph will join Washington, his main target at Oklahoma State and Pittsburgh's second-round choice. A prospect like Rudolph would have been the ideal pick to replace him and would have been an upgrade for the future over Andy Dalton, one of the less talented established starting quarterbacks in the league. The Cowboys should have more draft picks on Saturday in rounds 4-7, including receiver Marcell Ateman.
