Could Mason Rudolph be the quarterback of the future for the Bills?
General Manager Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott are continuing to do their homework on the potential franchise changers in the draft.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Oklahoma State quarterback will have a private workout with the team over the weekend.
#OKState QB Mason Rudolph will have a top 30 visit with the #Bills this weekend, source said. Buffalo picks 12 and 22. He’s also met with or had workouts for the #Chargers, #Saints, #Giants, #Steelers, #Patriots, and #Bengals. It’s been quiet but very active.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 6, 2018
Rudolph is the Cowboys’ all-time leading passer having thrown for more than 13,000 yards to go along with 92 touchdowns. However, the one knock on him is the system he played in under Mike Gundy. He took the majority of snaps from shotgun.
At 6′-5″, Rudolph has all the physical traits a team would hope for in identifying a potential franchise quarterback. He’s accurate with the football, showed an ability to adequately move through his progressions and displayed good pocket awareness. He’s also a decent enough athlete can he can keep plays alive and get out of trouble, if needed.
Rudolph isn’t typically mentioned as one of the “top tier” signal callers that are available in the draft, with some pundits projecting him as a late first or even a second round selection.
With the 12th and 22nd overall pick, if Rudolph is available, it wouldn’t be a total surprise if the Bills take their QB1 of the future.
