ESPN lists Mason Rudolph as possible candidate to be Cardinals’ next QB


After three-plus tremendous years as Oklahoma State’s starting quarterback, Mason Rudolph might not have to wait long for another starting job.

ESPN’s John Weinfuss listed Rudolph among candidates to be the Arizona Cardinals’ starting quarterback in 2018. Carson Palmer retired Tuesday, and backups Drew Stanton, Blaine Gabbert and Matt Barkley will all be free agents, leaving a gaping hole behind center in Phoenix.

Rudolph set more than 50 school records with the Cowboys, becoming the program’s all-time leader in passing yards, passing touchdowns and career victories. As a senior, he led Oklahoma State to a 10-3 record with a victory in the Camping World Bowl. It completed the Cowboys’ three-year run of 10-win seasons, with Rudolph as the quarterback in all three years.

Rudolph was durable, too, playing in 41 straight games after his collegiate debut. He started 40 of those contests, entering midway through the 2015 Bedlam game on a broken foot. Rudolph also played through broken ribs and other ailments throughout his career.

In addition to his passing prowess, Rudolph established himself as an impact player in the community, as well. He won the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award as the top senior quarterback on the field, in the classroom and in the community.

The Cardinals have the 15th overall pick in April’s NFL Draft, and it’s possible they could wait until the second round to take Rudolph. Rudolph proved during his Oklahoma State career he can step in and thrive immediately, which might be exactly what Arizona is looking for.
