In the newest installment of Intentional Scouting, Mark Schofield and I were joined by CBS Sports Draft Writer, Chris Trapasso to breakdown senior quarterback Mason Rudolph of Oklahoma State.

During his time as a three-year starter for the Cowboys, Rudolph was one of the more dynamic down-field throwers in the country, amassing over 13,000 career passing yards. Add in a stellar 4:1 touchdown-to-interception ratio for his career and you can see why NFL teams are doing their homework on the 6’ 5", 230-pound signal caller.

In his latest mock draft, Trapasso had the Bills selecting Rudolph with the 21st overall pick and suggested the Bills might stay put and get a guy that, “checks all the boxes.”’s Lance Zierlein sees him as a long-term back-up with starting potential down the road, “Rudolph is more of a downfield, play-action passer than a quarterback who can win with precision and arm strength. He's a capable field reader who has the ability to operate with timing which will be important since his arm can be dull at times. Rudolph could be an early backup with the potential of becoming an average to below average starter in the league.”
