ALAMEDA, Calif. – C Rodney Hudson has been named All-Pro Second Team, the Associated Press announced Friday.
Hudson, who earned his third-career Pro Bowl selection in December, anchored a line that allowed just 29 sacks to rank eighth in the NFL in 2019. He started 15 games for the Silver and Black despite nursing an ankle injury suffered in Week 8, helping pave the way for Josh Jacobs' team rookie record of 1,150 rushing yards. Hudson and the offensive line also helped Derek Carr set career highs with 4,054 passing yards and a 70.4 completion percentage (361-for-513).
Signed by the Raiders as an unrestricted free agent in 2015, Hudson has started 76 games for the Silver and Black in five seasons and has missed just four total games. He started 59 straight games before missing the Week 9 contest against Detroit. Hudson was also selected by his teammates as the Commitment to Excellence Award winner for the third-straight season.
Originally drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the second round (55th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft, Hudson has played in 127 career games with 111 starts. He played in 53 games with 50 starts in four years at Florida State, earning All-ACC honors four times.
