Oklahoma State received a verbal commitment from three-star 2019 DT Jayden Jernigan.

Jernigan was also considering schools like Texas Tech, Washington and Colorado. The 6-foot-1, 280-pound defensive tackle ranks 33rd among the position in the 247 composite rankings, and as the 65th best player in the state of Texas. Gabe Brooks of the recruiting site calls him a "quick and powerful interior defensive lineman who probably best fits an even-front 3-technique role at the next level."

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller lists Justice Hill as the second best running back on his board for the 2019 NFL Draft coming into the season.

Hill is sandwiched between Alabama's Damien Harris and Stanford's Bryce Love at the position. It's worth noting that no running backs make Miller's initial top 25 prospects to start the year. Hill (5'10/171) was exceptional in 2017, rushing for 1,467 yards and 15 scores. With Mason Rudolph and James Washington off to the NFL, the Cowboys could rely more on Hill in 2018, and he could put up even bigger numbers in the process.

Oklahoma State received a verbal commitment from four-star 2020 T Eli Russ.

Russ is ranked as the 22nd best tackle in the class according to 247 Sports composite rankings, and he's the third best player in the state of Oklahoma in those same rankings. At 6-foot-5, 305-pounds, Russ has NFL size already as a sophomore in high school, and this could be a candidate for immediate playing time -- depending on the depth chart -- when he enrolls in Stillwater at some point in 2020.

Raiders selected Oklahoma State WR Marcell Ateman with the No. 228 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Ateman (6’5/216) rebounded from a 2016 foot fracture to explode for a 59/1,156/19.6/8 receiving line as a redshirt senior, leading the nation in yards per route run (3.52) and earning second-team All-Big 12 opposite James Washington. Although Ateman is plus sized with advanced ball skills, he showed limited twitch and speed against Big 12 corners and is old for a rookie, turning 24 in September. Ateman managed a 4.62 forty and pedestrian vertical (34") and broad (10’1") jumps at the Combine. Ateman’s likely ceiling is a No. 3 possession-type wideout.

Steelers traded up with the Seahawks to select Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph with the No. 76 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Steelers gave up the No. 79 and No. 220 picks. Rudolph (6’5/235) made 41 starts for the Cowboys, going 32-9 with a 63.2% completion rate, 9.4 yards per attempt, and 92:26 TD-to-INT ratio. In 2017, PFF College charted Rudolph with 1,712 yards on throws delivered 20-plus yards downfield, most among all draft-eligible quarterbacks. Rudolph benefited from throwing to James Washington and Marcell Ateman, Oklahoma State’s spread offense, and slow Big 12 defenses. Rudolph is also a pocket passer only, lacking any ability to move the chains with his legs. Still, Rudolph’s sustained production, aggressive downfield mindset, and competent tools give him a shot at becoming a low-end starter. Rudolph will have a chance to grow in Pittsburgh's offense with rookie WR James Washington, who was Rudolph's favorite target at Oklahoma State.

Steelers selected Oklahoma State WR James Washington with the No. 60 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Washington (5’11/213) earned the 2017 Biletnikoff Award as college football’s top wideout, leading the nation in receiving yards (1,549) and graduating with the second-most career receiving yards (4,472) in Big 12 history. In 2017, PFF College credited Washington with the third-most yards per route run (3.48) among 2018 draft-eligible receivers and a nation-high 815 yards on passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield. A stocky deep threat who whizzed by Big 12 defensive backs, Washington’s forty (4.54) and three-cone (7.11) times disappointed at the Combine, raising concerns about his NFL transition. The Steelers dealt Martavis Bryant on Thursday night and drafted his potential replacement in round two.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein projects Oklahoma State WR James Washington to the Titans with the 57th pick in his Day 2 mock draft.

Many expect the Titans to select a pass-rusher in the second round, but there is a need at wideout for Marcus Mariota as well. He also projects Florida State edge-rusher Josh Sweat to go to Tennessee in the third-round, so they can certainly address both positions on Friday. "The Titans add a vertical weapon to pair with Corey Davis on the outside," Zierlein writes. We see the fit.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein projects Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph to be drafted by the Dolphins with the 42nd pick in his second-round mock.

The Chargers have also been connected to Rudolph, but in this scenario, Los Angeles would have to trade up to procure the quarterback. The 6-foot-5, 235-pound quarterback received some first-round talk, but it was never likely that six signal-callers were going to go in the first. We barely got five. As Zierlein notes, Rudolph can sit behind Ryan Tannehill for a year or two, and then become Miami's long-term quarterback. Potentially, anyway.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports he's "heard a lot of buzz" about Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph and the Chargers.

Rudolph would be a great fit for the Chargers offense and have the opportunity to sit behind Philip Rivers for at least a year. The Chargers hold pick No. 48 and would likely have to trade up to select Rudolph as plenty of quarterback-needy teams pick before them. Both the Giants and Patriots have been linked to Rudolph previously and are in a good position to draft him. He will likely be selected in the top half of Round 2.
Apr 27 - 1:41 PM

FanRag Sports draft analyst Jon Ledyard believes that the Giants could be targeting a trade up to acquire Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph.

It appears the Giants aren't going to address the quarterback position with the second-overall pick -- that appears to be Penn State RB Saquon Barkley or possibly NC State edge-rusher Bradley Chubb -- but the Giants could still come out of Thursday's first round with a signal-caller. " There is support on their current coaching staff for Rudolph," Ledyard writes, "as some there feel he can be a great fit for Pat Shurmur and Mike Shula’s offense with a little time behind Eli Manning." There's a chance Rudolph could be there at pick 34, but the Giants may not want to risk him falling out of their reach.

James Washington had a 133.8 passer rating generated on contested catches.

Washington's testing has seen his draft stock fall this year, but that stat shows that there are very few -- if any -- better than Washington when it comes to hauling in the one-on-one balls. Every once in a while there is a player that just makes plays despite not having the same kind of speed, strength, etc. as some of the other prospects. It's entirely possible that Washington is one of those players.

An anonymous scout speaking with Bob McGinn Football said he sees some of former Dolphins WR Chris Chambers in Oklahoma State WRs James Washington.

"He’s got a chance," said the scout. "I think I see Chris Chambers a little bit. I know he didn’t run as fast but he’s got good length (32 3/8-inch arms). He can track it. Plays faster than he ran. Good timing, leaping (vertical of 39). He’s not dynamic after the catch." Washington posted a ludicrous 226-4,472-39 line in college. "He’s a running back playing receiver," said a second scout. "He’s a little tight. Can’t run routes." A third scout was even more pessimistic. "In college, he used his body against a lot of people to get separation," het said. "He’s not going to do that. They’re going to cover him up … blanket him in the NFL. It won’t translate. He can be a No. 4, or maybe a No. 3 on a bad team." Washington (5'11/213) is projected to go off the board on Day 2.
Apr 24 - 4:49 PM

An NFL scout told Bob McGinn Football that Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph reminds him of Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan.

"He’s calm, cool, collected, accurate," the scout noted of Rudolph. He vehemently dismissed any notion that the 6-foot-5, 235-pounder had anything in common with Brandon Weedon outside of the school in which both played their college ball. If that Ryan comp is a bit too lofty, another evaluator who spoke with McGinn Football saw some similarities with Kirk Cousins, which feels more in the ballpark to us. Said that particular scout, "He’s not going to take everybody to the next level but he’s going to do the right thing and be a game manager." There's been recent buzz that the Patriots might be interested in Rudolph. They've been linked to several quarterbacks beyond the Oklahoma State signal-caller, too, with Lamar Jackson and Josh Rosen both batted around in rumor as potential picks for HC Bill Belichick and staff. At this juncture, we would be surprised if New England did not draft a quarterback relatively early when festivities boot up in Dallas later this week.
Apr 23 - 3:50 PM

NFL Draft Scout's Rob Rang hears that Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph has been "increasingly" tied to the New England Patriots.

As Rang notes, the Patriots have both the 23rd and 31st pick in the first round, and also have pick 43 after the Jimmy Garoppolo trade. New England needs a quarterback of the future with Tom Brady on the wrong side of 40 and no developmental signal-callers on the roster, and Rudolph's quick release could fit well in the Patriots' system. Most believe he'd be a reach at 23, but at 31 or 43, it makes a lot of sense on paper.
Apr 14 - 12:44 PM

A Big 12 area scout cautioned that Oklahoma State T Zach Crabtree has "some tape that makes you really nervous."

"I don't think he can keep speed rushers from eating his lunch - especially if they have an inside move to whip him with," the scout said. He believes that the 6-foot-7, 310-pound Crabtree will probably be over-drafted based solely on his impressive size. That size does not come with a particularly appealing athletic profile -- Crabtree tested in just the 1st percentile of NFL linemen at the combine. NFL.com's Lance Zierlein assigns him a fifth-round grade for draft purposes.
