Did the Bills Have Their Eyes on QB Mason Rudolph in the Draft?

After drafting Mason Rudolph as Ben Roethlisberger’s heir apparent, general manager Kevin Colbert revealed that the Steelers graded the Oklahoma State star on par with the best quarterbacks in this year’s draft class.

They weren’t alone in evaluating Rudolph as a worthwhile early-round gamble, Chris Wesseling of reports.

Appearing on Monday’s edition of NFL Up to the Minute, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport said the Bills would have “strongly considered” Rudolph at No. 22 overall had they not been successful in trading up for Wyoming’s Josh Allen earlier in the first round.

“There were some teams — not all teams, but some teams — who rated him there,” Rapoport added. “The Steelers really loved him.”
