Raiders center Rodney Hudson is one of the premier talents in the league, but because of his position people tend to overlook him; however, if you've ever watched him play you'd know he's integral to the team's success. While the three-time Pro Bowler (selected in 2019, 2017, and 2016) may be overlooked at times, he's finally getting some recognition as he was recently named to the PFWA (Pro Football Writers of America) All-AFC team.
