Steelers still looking for linebackers in Day 2 of National Football League draft

Package deal: Rudolph, Washington heading to Pittsburgh

The Steelers have veteran Vince Williams at one spot and signed Jon Bostic for depth in free agency but need an influx of elite talent. A prospect like Rudolph would have been the ideal pick to replace him and would have been an upgrade for the future over Andy Dalton, one of the less talented established starting quarterbacks in the league.

With their final pick in the 7th round, the Steelers selected DT Joshua Frazier. With the 76th pick, the Steelers took Washington's quarterback, Mason Rudolph, keeping the record-setting duo together.

As if that twist of fate weren't enough, Rudolph will be reunited with college teammate and fellow Oklahoma State Cowboys star James Washington. However, Roethlisberger has one more year left on his contract after the 2018 season.

The physical Nittany Lions defensive back was drafted by Pittsburgh in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft on Saturday.

Coalition Airstrikes on Yemen Capital Kill Houthi Leaders
Witnesses in Sanaa reported more Saudi-led air raids over the capital during the funeral, without reporting any casualties. The rebels, known as Houthis, have previously fired missiles targeting the Saudi mainland, including the capital, Riyadh .

The 6-4, 227-pound Rudolph threw for 4,904 yards with 37 touchdowns and nine interceptions in his senior season. Rudolph, on the other hand, will step into the role of understudy to Steeler legend Ben Roethlisberger.

Allen is the second safety selected by the Steelers in the draft. Then again, the Steelers may elect to have him serve as their third-stringer so they can develop him a little more slowly. While Washington does not have the same pure speed as Bryant, the Steelers can hope he is a more rounded receiver than can complement a young receiving unit.

Not long after, Washington learned he would be joined by a familiar face in Pittsburgh. The Steelers also traded away their seventh-round (220th overall).
