Newest Pittsburgh Steeler: Marcus Allen

Pittsburgh Steelers NFL Draft Picks 2018 Round-by Round Results Grades

And that is a big reason why the Steelers chose Penn State safety Marcus Allen in the fifth round of the 2018 National Football League draft.

The Pittsburgh Steelers used their second- and third-round picks to select Washington and Rudolph on Friday, writing a storybook finish to their National Football League draft journeys. The former Oklahoma State wide receiver was selected 60th overall after finishing the 2017 season with an 87.0 overall grade. The Seattle Seahawks snatched Flowers, a safety, in the fifth round with the 146th pick.

Coupled with the fact that Roethlisberger has discussed retirement in the past, the Steelers had a pressing need to find an heir apparent. "I am hopeful that Ben is going to commit and play about four, five, six more years".

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

Until Rudolph, who was not on hand.

The question is: How long will it take for Mason Rudolph to receive his first start with the Pittsburgh Steelers?

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

Washington and Rudolph have played before on Heinz Field, their future home.

This is the second straight year the Steelers have taken a wide receiver in the second round. Rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster caught 58 passes for 917 yards.

The 6-foot Washington can line up both in the slot and on the outside and can get downfield. His 4,472 career receiving yards are an OSU record.

The Steelers wrapped up day 2 by bolstering their offensive line selecting tackle Chukwuma Okorafor from Western Michigan. He would go on to make 11 tackles in that game.
