Mason Rudolph’s NFL draft stock is still sky-high after some hiccups in recent games.
CBS Sports’ Chris Trapasso projected the Oklahoma State quarterback to be selected by the Cleveland Browns as the No. 1 pick in his NFL mock draft on Wednesday.
“Rudolph is experienced, super productive, and is mature beyond his years passing from the pocket,” Trapasso wrote. “Hue Jackson will be enamored with the Oklahoma State signal-caller.”
Rudolph, who has been in the Heisman Trophy discussion since the preseason, has thrown for 1,909 yards and 16 touchdowns through five games. His season has been highlighted by a 497-yard, 5-touchdown passing performance against Pittsburgh in Week 3 — a game which Oklahoma State won 59-21.
Rudolph’s only “sluggish” performance of the season came in Week 4. The senior threw two interceptions and lost a fumble in the Cowboys’ lone loss of the season to TCU on Sept. 23.
Even then, Rudolph still threw for 398 yards with a rushing touchdown in that game.
Rudolph and the Cowboys return to action at home against winless Baylor on Saturday. Kickoff for the game in Stillwater is set for 2:30 p.m. CT.
