The Raiders Center Doesn't Get Enough Respect

Rodney Hudson is one of the best players in the NFL at his respective position. Of course, his position is center, so it's not like he's as much of a household name as some similarly talented quarterbacks, wide receivers or running backs. But maybe he should be.

Because according to this key stat from Pro Football Focus, Hudson has been the best pass-blocking center in the league for quite some time.

In fact, he's been the highest graded pass-blocking center in the league since 2015, which is flat-out ridiculous.

Hudson will be turning 31 in mid-July, so he likely still has a few more years of his prime left. With the move to Las Vegas, having a veteran presence like Hudson will be a huge boon for the Las Vegas Raiders organization.
