Mason Rudolph meets with Steelers, ‘loved’ playing at Heinz Field in 2017

It’s not hard to picture former Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph throwing touchdowns at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pa.

He’s actually done it before.

During his senior season at Oklahoma State, Rudolph lit up ACC foe Pittsburgh for 497 yards passing and 5 touchdowns on Sept. 16, 2017.

The NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers are now apparently interested in the former Cowboys quarterback.

Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert and coach Mike Tomlin met with Rudolph after his pro day on Thursday, according to NFL.com’s Chase Goodbread.

Rudolph shared some details of his exchange with the Steelers.

“I told them how much I loved playing on that unbelievable field. It was a cool experience,” Rudolph said to NFL.com. “That was one of my better games. [Colbert and Tomlin] didn’t say whether they were there, and I didn’t ask if they were, but it’s their field, so I’m sure they had someone there.”

Pittsburgh has picks No. 28 (first round), No. 60 (second round), No. 92 (third round), No. 148 (fifth round), No. 165 (fifth round), No. 220 (seventh round) and No. 246 (seventh round) in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Rudolph is expected to be taken in either the first or second round. Although, he might not be there at No. 28 for Pittsburgh.

The Los Angeles Chargers, who own the No. 17 overall pick, met with Rudolph as well last week, per NFL.com. The New York Giants also met with the Oklahoma State favorite.
