The Pittsburgh Steelers made a move in the 2018 NFL Draft which has been talked about since Max Starks stood at the podium and read off the name.
Mason Rudolph, quarterback, Oklahoma State.
Fans were excited, as well as curious what Rudolph could bring to the team, but when Ben Roethlisberger made some rather controversial comments about the team’s selection the lights on Rudolph got even brighter.
While the rookie quarterback took the media attention in stride, he recently sat down and spoke with Missi Matthews of Steelers.com to talk about everything from the NFL Draft experience, remaining a teammate of wide receiver James Washington at the NFL level and how thankful and blessed he is to be a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The interview can be viewed below, and Rudolph says all the right things throughout the entire video.
"He put A LOT of points up on the board at Oklahoma State." @Rudolph2Mason discusses his #NFLDraft process, why he had his fingers crossed for Pittsburgh, the most difficult part of the draft, everything you need to know about @james_james28 and so much more. pic.twitter.com/YcICZtyBgo— Pittsburgh Steelers (@steelers) May 7, 2018
What will be more noticeable to fans will not be what he says, but how he does on the field. Rudolph, and the rest of the Steelers’ rookies, started their rookie minicamp Friday, which will conclude on Sunday. Stay tuned to BTSC for the latest on minicamp, as well as all things black-and-gold as the team heads into the offseason.
