According to a story by Aaron Wilson in the Carroll County Times, the Baltimore Ravens will be working out Florida State G/C Rodney Hudson at some point shortly. Hudson was an All-ACC and consensus All-American for the Seminoles and according to his coach, one of the best players he has ever coached.

With current Ravens center, Matt Birk, entering his 14th NFL season, the team needs to be looking at bringing in someone who can be mentored by the six-time Pro Bowl veteran. Hudson looks to have all the tools and his college career seems to grade out as a solid NFL prospect.

One of the most compelling stats is that he was called for only one penalty in over 800 snaps last season. However, at under 300 pounds, Rodney is a bit light for the NFL and knows he has to bulk up, which shouldn't be a problem under the guidance of NFL dietitians and trainers.

Hudsonis being looked at by a few other teams, with the Miami Dolphins also scheduled to hold a private workout with him. He is rated by NFL Draft Scout as the #1 center in this draft class and projected to go in the 2nd round.
