NFL Draft Signings: Rodney Hudson Agrees To Contract With Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs have now signed seven of their nine 2011 draft picks with the news that Rodney Hudson has agreed on a contract. The center from Florida State was one of the key picks in a stellar 2011 draft for the Chiefs. The uncertainty around the draft in regards to Casey Wiegmann's future made the center position a top priority for the Chiefs. Hudson fell all the way to the Chiefs pick in the middle of the second round and it seemed like the obvious pick at the time.

Hudson was projected by many draft experts to be taken anywhere from the bottom of the first round, to the middle of the second round. Hudson's four-year deal with the Chiefs was signed for an undisclosed amount of money. But Hudson now gets to watch and learn from one of the most technically-sound centers in recent football memory, and not to mention a guy that can teach the young rookie how to take care of his body playing in the trenches.

Wiegmann is still currently active on his 10k + consecutive snap streak and that feat is nothing short of amazing. This is a player that is literally right in the middle of the action and has found a way to keep his body healthy enough to step on the field each and every Sunday, and for each and every play. Whatever knowledge Hudson can get out of Wiegmann this season will go a long ways in the success of the young rookies career in Kansas City.

The Chiefs are now just waiting on the signings of Jon Baldwin and Justin Houston to round out the 2011 class. These signings should happen quickly because these guys need to get to camp on time and it's not the first impression that these players want to make with a hold-out out on an already-shortened offseason.
