Joshua Frazier drafted by Pittsburgh Steelers in seventh round

NFL Draft 2018: Steelers select potential Ben Roethlisberger successor Mason Rudolph

On Thursday, the Steelers traded away one of their top receivers, Martavis Bryant, leaving room for Washington to fill an immediate void.

Allen, a hard-hitting safety was the 148th overall pick. Edmunds' combination of size and speed means the Steelers may have the ability to experiment and try the former Hokie out at numerous positions, including potentially a linebacker in passing situations. He is the sixth player in Penn State history to reach 300 tackles in a career, ranking fifth in school history with 321 stops in 2017. He caught five passes for 124 yards when Oklahoma State blew out Pitt 59-21 last September. In addition to adding Washington to the receiving corps, Pittsburgh also has a rising star in JuJu Smith-Schuster.

Rudolph, though, will have time to learn under Roethlisberger and, when he does see the field, will be able to throw to a familiar target.

Rudolph went was the 12th pick of the third round (76th overall).

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. The Steelers still have long-time QB Ben Roethlisberger firmly entrenched as the starter, but Rudolph gives Mike Tomlin's team a young understudy to develop for the future.

The Steelers' presence at Oklahoma State's pro day in March was noticeable.

It is always tough to judge whether a team had success based on the inconsistent evaluation of draft experts, but on the surface the Steelers failed to address a major need on the defensive side of the football.
