Pittsburgh picks NC State's Jaylen Samuels in National Football League draft

With Troy Apke selected earlier in the day, Penn State has now had more than one defensive back drafted in the same weekend for the first time since 2006, when Calvin Lowry, Alan Zemaitis and converted receiver Ethan Kilmer were picked.

Not long after, Washington learned he would be joined by a familiar face in Pittsburgh. But so much of how the Steelers' 2018 draft is perceived in future years will hinge on what happens with Mason Rudolph.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was at OSU's Pro Day in March.

Roethlisberger is listed at 6-foot-5, 240 pounds, while Rudolph is 6-5 and 235.

Washington has the tools to be one of the more explosive wide receivers to emerge from this draft class, and Rudolph should at least help him develop on the practice field.

Both players were clearly on Pittsburgh's radar throughout the process.

Brazilian legend makes massive claim about Madrid interest in Neymar
Barcelona legend Rivaldo believes Neymar has the chance to win the Ballon d'Or if he joins Spanish Giants Real Madrid . Furthermore, the PSG superstar has been linked with many clubs and including Real Madrid and Manchester United.

Oklahoma State scored touchdowns on all seven possessions of the first half in a 59-21 win over Pittsburgh, with Rudolph throwing for 497 yards in a little more than two quarters.

Rudolph went on to lead the nation in passing yards with 4,904.

Washington's National Football League stock seemed to peak during an impressive performance in preparation for the Senior Bowl in January, with many draft analysts penciling him into the first round and near the top of the list of receivers in the class.

Washington won the Biletnikoff Award this season as the nation's outstanding collegiate receiver after catching 74 passes for 1,549 yards and 13 touchdowns. His 4,472 career receiving yards are an OSU record.

Rudolph was projected as a fringe first round draft pick whose status as an Air Raid quarterback would limit his appeal.
