Steelers select potential Roethlisberger successor Rudolph

Pittsburgh traded up with Seattle to make the pick, ending Rudolph's wait after he hoped to be selected in the first round.

In the second round, the Steelers selected WR James Washington from Oklahoma State, a very capable replacement after trading Martavis Bryant Thursday to Oakland. His brother Tremaine, a linebacker who also played at Virginia Tech, was selected by the Bills earlier with the No. 16 overall pick.

After five quarterbacks were taken in the first round, Rudolph was the only signal-caller to come off the board on Day 2.

Rudolph left the Cowboys as the program's all-time winningest quarterback with a 32-9 record.

Anthony Joshua offered $50 million by Wilder for heavyweight mega-fight
Joshua [previously] asked for $50 million against 50 percent, and we gave it to them. "We really want to do the fight in the UK". Al Haymon and I have never not delivered what we've offered. "I've made an offer, he can either accept it or not".

Rudolph enjoyed the best season of his career in 2017, completing 65 per cent of his passes for 4,904 yards and 37 touchdowns with nine interceptions.

The 5-foot-11, 213-pound Washington finished the year with 1,549 yards and 13 touchdowns on 74 catches, for averages of 20.9 yards per catch and 119.2 per game.

Washington's selection marks the latest in a tradition of success for OSU wide receivers in the National Football League draft, as he joins Justin Blackmon, Dez Bryant, Rashaun Woods and Hart Lee Dykes as early-round picks at the position.

Rudolph joins a roster that includes Ben Roethlisberger and Landry Jones at quarterback.
