Pittsburgh Steelers draft former Okla. State QB Mason Rudolph

In fact, it's something he's sure he'll never forget.

Rudolph becomes the 121st player in OSU history to be selected in an National Football League draft, and the 23rd draft pick under Mike Gundy.

After spending a second-round pick on wide receiver James Washington the Steelers quickly turned around and traded up in the third round to draft quarterback Mason Rudolph.

That's fine for both Washington - taken in the second round - and Rudolph - selected with the first of Pittsburgh's two third-round picks.

"I definitely think I'm a great quarterback and I'm a little done with the comparison questions", Rudolph said, "but I'm definitely confident with the way I stacked up [with the other quarterbacks]".

Day two of the NFL Draft has come and gone and the Pittsburgh Steelers have added to their roster. The Bedlam rivals might just be facing off on the field again someday.

Offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner downplayed the idea that Rudolph will serve as Roethlisberger's eventual heir, though Rudolph is the first quarterback the Steelers have taken before the fourth round since they drafted Roethlisberger 11th overall in 2004. "I am hopeful that Ben is going to commit and play about four, five, six more years". "Whenever my time comes to play [Cleveland ] twice a year, it'll be a joy".

Rudolph also plans to use his Steelers career to prove he stacks up with the rest of the quarterback draft class. He led the Cowboys to a 32-9 record as a starter, including 10 victories in games in which OSU trailed during the second half.
