Expected to be a Day One starter, the transition from college to the NFL has taken longer than Chiefs second-round pick Rodney Hudson expected. He has yet to crack the starting lineup, though that might change soon. With OLG Ryan Lilja suffering head and neck injuries in Week 11, Hudson saw a good amount of snaps toward the end of the game against the Patriots. Chiefs head coach Todd Haley was asked about the rookie and said Hudson's play was "not bad," and did indicate the team was pleased with his performance in limited action.

Able to play both center and guard, Hudson is a versatile player who, despite a lack of size, is athletic and strong enough to man the middle of the line. Because the team is still in the race for first place in the AFC West, Haley has not committed to starting the rookie yet, but we hear that it won't be long before Hudson is playing with the first team somewhere on front five.
