Rodney Hudson has been one of the most athletic High Caliber Centers in this Draft Class: His Lateral Agility and Flanking Speed in college were absolutely phenomenal.
However, the 15 pounds he'd added for The Combine did not look good on him, and it seems to me that his "40" time, as well as the more telling Vertical Leap, Shuttle, and Cone times, suffered. He looked absolutely awful, and he performed horribly. That athleticism is now in question.
He has never shown the greatest Power in the Run Game, nor the most impressive Strength on the Pass Rush.
And I think he's simply too short to play the position effectively.
His lack of height would be less of a disadvantage at Center, and his athleticism ~ if it returns ~ would compensate for his mediocre Strength. Indeed, I consider the move to Center to be so clearly to the advantage of whoever drafts him that I'm going to proceed under the assumption that it happens.
Even so, I now question whether he's even got the frame to add enough weight ~ good weight ~ to compete at the next level. And yet he's still the top rated Center, projected for the early 2nd Round!!
As always, the preceding thoughts were regurgitated, derivative tripe, adding no value whatsoever, while in fact obliterating intelligent thought and offending the spirit of all decent men. You are now stupider for having read it, and are encouraged, in the strongest possible language, never to expose your eyes to this Site again.
