Steelers Snag A Pair Of Cowboys In Washington and Rudolph

Day two of the NFL Draft has come and gone and the Pittsburgh Steelers have added to their roster. Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph.

According to Jacob Klinger of PennLive.com, Rudolph is putting the onus on himself to develop at the National Football League level: "It's not Ben's job to teach me anything, it's my job to learn".

Drafting one of the most productive quarterback and wide receiver duos in NCAA history is certainly a way to build towards a bright future. Maybe. The Steelers took Terrell Edmunds in the first round but at almost 220 pounds, do not rule out a move to inside linebacker where his short-area coverage skills and physical play would be welcome. Few expected him to fall to the third round, but it's a development that certainly works in Pittsburgh's favor. Washington is already familiar with Heinz Field.

Darlene Sustrich is the co-owner of a Colorado crane company where the suspect in the deadly Waffle House shooting once worked. Don Aaron, a Nashville Police spokesman, said Reinking's father "has now acknowledged giving them back" to his son.

In other words: Whether Rudolph is asked to step in during the 2018 season or receives time on the sidelines, he'll be surrounded by nearly unparalleled talent.

On the other side of the line, the Steelers return left tackle Alejandro Villanueva, a U.S. Military Academy graduate who in 2017 became the first service academy alum to make the NFL Pro Bowl.
