Rudolph politely disagrees.
The 6-foot-5, 235-pound Rudolph, who led major college football in passing yards last season, told Jim Rome in a January interview that he thinks he’s the best quarterback in the 2018 draft class. On Friday, in an interview with Sporting News, he expounded on those thoughts.
In 2017, Rudolph completed 65 percent of his passes for 4,904 yards and 37 touchdowns. But most mock drafts, rankings and projections have Wyoming’s Josh Allen, USC’s Sam Darnold, Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield and UCLA’s Josh Rosen ahead of Mayfield. Some also rank Louisville’s Lamar Jackson ahead of Rudolph, who is widely considered a late first-round to second-round pick.
“That’s the general consensus, right? I mean, I’m with you as far as the talking heads, ESPN, NFL Network,” Rudolph said. “But I think if you talk to those guys and then you talk to the actual decision-makers and the evaluators in the NFL, you get two different opinions.
“I think everyone’s gonna see draft night what’s gonna happen and how it’s all gonna sort itself out.”
