Center of Attention

With players sliding left and right in round two, there was tremendous value when the Chiefs were ready to make their second selection of the 2011 NFL Draft. And when they were on the clock, they wasted little time selecting Florida State Center Rodney Hudson.

Needing to improve their offensive line the Kansas City Chiefs found their future Center by selecting Florida State Center Rodney Hudson.

The four-year starter has played mostly guard but tool snaps at center for the Seminole program. But he's expected to be a center at the NFL level.

It's clear that with veteran Casey Wiegmann yet to announce his plans for 2011, the selection of Hudson made a lot of sense for the Kansas City Chiefs in the second round.

Some draft analysts had Hudson rated as the most versatile interior lineman in this draft. At nearly 6'3", the 300 pound offensive lineman will be a perfect anchor for Chiefs line for many years to come.

The only knock on Hudson is that he has short arms. But so did the man he's replacing in Kansas City as the teams starting center.

But there is one thing that can be questioned about Hudson. After starting four years at a high profile and competitive school like Florida State, he'll be arriving in Kansas City with plenty of experience in hand. Top Stories
