Ben Roethlisberger is about to enter his 15th National Football League season, all with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Western Michigan's Chukwuma Okorafor became the Broncos' third offensive lineman drafted in the past three years Friday, when the Pittsburgh Steelers selected the senior tackle in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Rudolph becomes the 121st player in OSU history to be selected in an National Football League draft, and the 23rd draft pick under Mike Gundy.

He joins Brandon Weeden, Zac Robinson and Rusty Hilger as the only OSU quarterbacks to be drafted into the NFL.

A native of Rock Hill, South Carolina, Rudolph is the winningest quarterback in OSU history.

Israel Hints It Could Hit Iran's 'Air Force' in Syria
According to Daniel, Israel was bracing for a possible Iranian missile salvo or armed drone assault from Syria. The Prime minister addressed that it is 2018 and Iran openly speaks about liquidating Israel.

Rudolph enjoyed the best season of his career in 2017, completing 65 per cent of his passes for 4,904 yards and 37 touchdowns with nine interceptions. Rudolph was named the victor of the 2017 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award and received second-team All-America honors.

On Thursday, the Steelers traded away one of their top receivers, Martavis Bryant, leaving room for Washington to compete for playing time immediately.

Washington and Rudolph demonstrated a remarkable rapport in college, the former racking up 1,549 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns in 2017, and they will hope that continues once Roethlisberger hangs up the cleats. He's also truly special after the catch. Rudolph looks to be the potential replacement for veteran QB Ben Roethlisberger who has expressed the possibility of retirement soon.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was at OSU's Pro Day in March.
