  • Steelers Draft Picks 2018: Oklahoma State Teammates Rudolph, Washington Selected On 2nd Day

Five quarterbacks went in the first round and Rudolph was routinely overlooked in those discussions.

Fichtner hopes Roethlisberger, 36, plays another four-to-six years - "I keep my fingers crossed he plays as long as he wants", he said - but believes competition in the quarterback room will improve everyone. He averaged 19.8 yards per reception with the Cowboys and showed the kind of elusiveness that allowed him to turn a short pass into a sprint to the end zone. As Roesthlisberger is already pretty old, this could happen soon, but Rudolph will likely get at least a full year to absorb the Steelers' system and learn the National Football League game before he has a shot at starting games consistently. "(But) I'm a little done with the comparison questions.

Washington was selected with the 60th overall pick in the second round, becoming the Cowboys' eighth player selected in the first two rounds of the draft since 2009.

The Steelers' first preseason game is August 9 at Philadelphia.


"This guy comes in with several tricks", new offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner said.

This is the second straight year the Steelers have taken a wide receiver in the second round. We've seen the team's ability to develop wide receivers - most recently with JuJu Smith-Schuster. Rudolph (6'5/235) made 41 starts for the Cowboys, going 32-9 with a 63.2% completion rate, 9.4 yards per attempt, and 92:26 TD-to-INT ratio.

"They got the best (receiving group) in the league", Washington said. The Steelers will have three picks including two picks in the fifth round.
