Jones is the one that's really going to have to play to keep his job as the backup. I think Dobbs could potentially beat Jones out for the #2 role. Rudolph is going to be the #3 at the very least unless he lights the world on fire and basically takes the backup role, though I highly doubt that in his rookie year.

Either way, I think drafting Rudolph was a smart move by the Steelers. You get a kid that looks pretty damn good and has all of the intangibles, and you install some competition into the QB Room. I think it's only thrown more fuel on Ben's competitive fire since Haley was fired. I think Jones and Dobbs have been put on notice and we could see the best from both of them.

Labriola: Landry Jones, not Mason Rudolph, is Steelers' No.2 QB

By BRYAN DEARDO

Mason Rudolph apparently won't be in a position battle with Landry Jones to be the Pittsburgh Steelers' No.2 quarterback in 2018.

imo the offense that Fichtner is putting is in the wheel house of Landry Dodds, and Mason.

Only from the standpoint that Dobbs knows he's going to have to play his ass off to stay on this roster. I know the front office and coaching staff like Jones because they've kept him around, but Dobbs isn't going to give up easily. As you said though, Dobbs will have to play absolutely lights out.

To be completely honest while I don't want to write off the potential for Dobbs to beat out Jones (anything can happen), in my heart of hearts I think Jones is going to be #2, Rudolph #3, and Dobbs will be looking to make the practice squad, or possibly the 3rd QB spot on some other team's roster.

For the Steelers Brass to determine Landry is the best backup QB makes me think they're smoking the same thing as WK.

I can see Mason not having the backup role going in to camp (that's just simple seniority going in to camp). However, knowing the way Jones has played in the past, no one in Steelers Nation (safe the Brass) thinks we're good if Ben goes down. I do believe Mason has the potential to out play Jones and Dobbs coming out of camp but he'll be put as the #3 until Jones plays himself out of the position and we need a solid backup to win some games. That person will be Mason.
