Steelers pick WMU offensive lineman Okorafor 92nd overall in 2018 NFL Draft

Pittsburgh Steelers 2018 NFL draft

The first round of the 2018 NFL Draft is in the books and the local NFL teams were busy.

The Pittsburgh Steelers hope to have found their quarterback of the future after selecting Mason Rudolph out of Oklahoma State with the No. 76 pick of the 2018 National Football League draft Friday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Speaking of Bryant, they used the third round pick they acquired to trade up three picks in the third round to select QB Mason Rudolph, also from Oklahoma State. The Seattle Seahawks snatched Flowers, a safety, in the fifth round with the 146th pick.

There is a large Penn State connection for Allen and the Steelers, besides just the amount of overlap between Nittany Lion and Steelers fans.

"It's not Ben's job to teach me anything. More than anything, I couldn't see myself not being able to throw a football for the next 10 years", Rudolph recently told The State.

Coupled with the fact that Roethlisberger has discussed retirement in the past, the Steelers had a pressing need to find an heir apparent.

Locally, the Giants, Steelers, and Jets were busy on Thursday night.

"To go on to the next chapter with one of your brothers and the best receiver you've spent your whole college days with and maybe spend 15 years with", Rudolph said, "it's awesome". Like Rudolph, Washington is already familiar with Heinz Field. Washington does not have the same speed that Bryant or Smith-Schuster possesses, but he may be able to develop into a possession receiver who can complement the other speedsters the Steelers have at wide receiver. His 4,472 career receiving yards are an OSU record.

Later in the third round, the Steelers took tackle Chukwuma Okorafor from Western Michigan. He made 15 tackles as a senior including 2.5 for loss.
