Pro Football Focus: Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph shines on quick passes

Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph was dominant in 2017.

The senior finished his final regular season in Stillwater with a nation-leading 4,553 passing yards en route to capturing the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award.

Rudolph had no fear of throwing the deep ball — as seen with Oklahoma State wide receivers James Washington and Jalen McCleskey among others. But Rudolph shined on quick, short passes as well.

According to Pro Football Focus, Rudolph posted a 115.9 passer rating on passes thrown within 2.5 seconds of the snap in 2017. It was tied as the fifth-highest mark of any passer among draft-eligible quarterbacks.

Rudolph will have one final go-around in a Cowboys uniform on Dec. 28 when Oklahoma State faces Virginia Tech in the Camping World Bowl. The game will be played at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla.
