NFL Draft 2011: Kansas City Chiefs Select Possible Steelers Target and Former Florida State Guard Rodney Hudson

Potential Steelers draft picks on the offensive line are flying off of the board right now. First it was Villanova tackle Ben Ilalana going to the Indianapolis Colts, now the Kansas City Chiefs have grabbed Florida State Guard Rodney Hudson. Hudson had a pre-draft visit with the Steelers earlier this year, so Pittsburgh very well could’ve been targeting him.

At 282 pounds, Hudson is a little bit undersized for a guard, so there is a danger that the mammoth nose tackles of the NFL could push him around. Nevertheless, the Chiefs may be thinking that what Hudson lacks in brute strength, he may well make up for in agility.

There are two ways to look at this. On one hand, Steelers fans have got to start feeling uneasy about the loss of so many talented offensive lineman in this year’s draft. On the other hand, no one is really taking cornerbacks right now, which means that the Steelers might get great value at CB with the 63rd overall pick. Brandon Harris is still on the board, folks.
