Let’s go with the latter here, and imagine a scenario where the 49ers could target someone like Rudolph with their first second-round pick in 2018.
Rudolph, 6-foot-5 and 230 pounds, has a collegiate-career 62.8 completion percentage. He also moves well for someone his size. And his calm demeanor within the pocket is something worth pointing out.
Check out the video of this below:
Unlike many spread quarterbacks, Rudolph likes to step up in the pocket when under pressure. If there are some issues, the quarterback does have some problems delivering the ball down the field with accuracy.
But the fit for the 49ers is this — Oklahoma State’s offense schemes receivers to get open. It’s the same concept with Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan.
Unlike Shanahan’s offense, though, Oklahoma State’s scheme is very simple. This could be a problem.
While Rudolph’s accuracy could use a bit of touch, he does offer an enticing skill set worth targeting late in Round 1 or early in Round 2.
