Ben Roethlisberger doesn’t appear to be pleased the Pittsburgh Steelers selected a quarterback in the third round of the 2018 NFL draft.
During a Friday appearance on Pittsburgh’s 93.7 The Fan, Roethlisberger expressed his dismay at the addition of Mason Rudolph:
Giants brass surely would like to get a better feel for what they have in last year’s third-round pick Davis Webb, who threw for more yards and touchdowns at Cal in 2016 than fellow Pac-12 quarterbacks Sam Darnold and Josh Rosen did in either of their last two college seasons. And the latter two passers are likely top-five picks in next week’s draft.
The Patriots have gone from having no first-rounders in the previous two drafts to having a pair of them for the first time since 2012, when they landed Hightower and defensive end Chandler Jones. As much as the Pats need help at those positions again, the Cooks deal puts them more in the wheelhouse of early values for the offense.
Walker played with the Mets in 2016 and 2017. In six plate appearances vs. Harvey, he’s got a hit and two strikeouts.
I think he’s just going through a stretch where he had a lot of success, went through a stretch when he didn’t have a lot of success, then he was banged up, he was hurt and he’s trying to work his way back and sometimes it’s a lot easier said than done, Walker said.
Yeah, I still keep in touch with some guys over there and obviously with them the best and I really enjoyed my last two years there. They got a good team. It’s fun to be a part of it and it’s fun to be over here, too. A lot good guys here.
Jackson is the heir apparent Baltimore had put off drafting while hoping Flacco would revert to his old form. Jackson’s confidence is such that he proclaimed himself a “Super Bowl-winning quarterback” in the aftermath of Thursday’s selection.
