He’s got light feet, a pretty good arm, and has the touch and timing of a pro quarterback.
Pitt (1-1) has had a rough start to the year, eeking out a win over Youngstown State at home before getting throttled by Penn State on the road.
This week on the College Draft Podcast with Ross Tucker, I broke down all the best matchups from some of the top games of the week, but let’s look at five more matchups that fans should keep their eyes on. The Cowboys take on their best opponent yet in Pitt.
It's the first real test for Rudolph and his star receiver James Washington.
Prediction: Cain catches four passes for 98 yards and a touchdown, but Lamar Jackson leads the Cardinals to victory. Boston College DE Harold Landry Notre Dame's Mike Mc Glinchey is one of the top tackles in the country. Consistency has been an issue for the Philadelphia native ever since he slid from the right side to the left, whether it’s been penalties or pressure on the quarterback.
Louisville was on the precipice of an upset last year on the road, and they pull it out this time at home. I’m probably a bigger fan of Mc Glinchey than most because I see the physical traits to be a starter on the blind side in the NFL.
In the secondary, keep an eye on cornerback Avonte Maddox.He can’t afford to dwell on it, however, because he’s got an even bigger test on Saturday afternoon.Harold Landry nearly declared for the 2017 draft after setting a school record with 16.5 sacks and leading the country with seven forced fumbles, but the 6-3, 250-pound edge rusher decided to go back for one final year at BC.One of Rudolph’s best traits is his deep ball, and I’d expect to see it early and often against the Panthers.He comes from an offensive system that doesn’t typically translate well to the NFL, but I think Rudolph can buck the trend and last in the league for a long time.The problem is that he’s day to day with a knee injury.
