"I think I've gotten the most from him so far, that he has a really big arm, a strong arm," Tucker said. "He throws a great ball.
" And I like his leadership so far. I feel that the child is really capable of bringing the team into play and calming everyone down and getting ready to rock. I am thrilled and see where he is going. "
Tucker said leadership skills stand out even during a three-day camp with no pads."
"Certain people just take the command," Tucker said, "and I think he's one of those guys who really is the togetherness of the offense understand. "

Similar to Rudolph Washington also set its fair share of Oklahoma State records, including shipyards at 4,472. He is also one of two players in the school's history to record three seasons with at least 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns.
"It's all What a recipient in a quarterback wants, "Washington said about working with Rudolph," just come and meet a guy.
"Just to have someone who feels good, a familiar face, it always helps, because if we have both questions, we can ask each other, and one of us will usually answer."
Washington called Rudolph a "perfectionist" and said that quality will translate the fastest to the NFL.
He does not like being sloppy, "Washington said." If it's sloppy, he'll repeat it. No matter what. This is something that will help him on this next level. "
