Elliot Harrison of NFL.com released his "All-Underrated Team" Monday, highlighting quality players in the NFL with whom the average fan might not be familiar.
Of the 26 players on Harrison's list, there was one member of the Silver and Black, newly-signed center Rodney Hudson.
Said Harrison, "Hudson was solid in the run game and screen game in Kansas City last season; now he'll surely hope to make a name for himself for reasons beyond his salary."
The Florida State product spent the first four years of his career playing with the Chiefs, appearing in 51 games and making 35 starts for Kansas City.

Hudson was one of the first free agents General Manager Reggie McKenzie signed this offseason, and his veteran presence has already been noticed by his teammates.
"Rodney is very athletic," Donald Penn told SiriusXM NFL Radio last week. "He's very good in space. He's very smart too. He's putting us in the right spots, making sure the protections are correct. He's a great addition to this offense and I think he's going to make us very, very good. I think we're going to be a good offensive line because of Rodney Hudson."
