Mason Rudolph leads the race for the Steelers' No. 2 quarterback job halfway through the 2019 preseason. It's a closer contest than most may want to admit, but what Rudolph has over Josh Dobbs is accuracy throwing to different parts of the field.
Rudolph, a third-round pick last year, still needs to improve several aspects of his game to match the first-round grade the Steelers had on him.
He finished his preseason start against the Chiefs completing 10 passes on 15 attempts for 77 yards, no touchdowns or interceptions and took one sack.
Rudolph's biggest struggle as a young quarterback has been finding comfort in rotating through his progressions. Too many times I've seen Rudolph stick to his primary pre-snap read and fail to work through his options against various defenses.
