Rodney Hudson to meet with Steelers
Florida State lineman to visit AFC North club Aaron Wilson

Florida State center-guard Rodney Hudson is scheduled to visit the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.

Hudson has worked out for the Baltimore Ravens.

He's a two-time winner of the Jacobs Blocking Trophy, recognized as the top offensive lineman in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The first-team consensus All-American was a three-time first-team all-conference selection.

"He's one of the best I've ever coached," Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said.

And Hudson graded out at 87 percent last season with 44 knockdown blocks and was flagged for just one penalty in 832 snaps last season.

Rated as the third guard on the National Football Post draft board, Hudson could also project to center at the next level.

Scouts will be very curious about how much Hudson weighs at the NFL scouting combine.

Quick with strong leverage, Hudson was listed at 6-foot-2, 291 pounds last season.

Hudson is regarded as a hard-nosed lineman who plays with intensity.

"I have knowledge of the game and a willingness to learn," Hudson said. "I use good technique to do my job. I definitely have a nasty streak. I go into a different mode on the field."

Hudson said the best player he ever blocked in the ACC was former Boston College nose guard B.J. Raji, who's now with the Green Bay Packers.

Hudson performed well in the Senior Bowl, but NFL teams want him to get bigger.

"I definitely need to gain weight," he said. "They want me to get bigger. Talking with the teams, they thought I used my hands well. I play with effort and definitely talking with them they knew I knew a lot about football."

Hudson said he's not focusing on a specific round for the NFL draft at this time.

"Of course, I want to go high," he said. "At the same time, it's a blessing to have this opportunity."
