BIO: Situational runner who finally saw starting action as a senior and posted 92/638/4 on the ground with 11/78/1 receiving. Suffered a season-ending knee injury in the sixth game of .04.
POSITIVES: Explosive back with good ball carrying intangibles. Patient, sees the field and waits for holes to develop or weaves through the traffic. Runs with balance, displays solid footwork in a small area and the ability to set defenders up, then make them miss. Bounces around piles and a shifty runner with the ability to immediately cut back against the grain. Decent pass catcher out of the backfield.
NEGATIVES: Not a strong back who breaks tackles. Besides the knee injury of last season, has had prior procedures on the joint. Arrested on a misdemeanor marijuana charge in 2003.
ANALYSIS: A prospect who had started to look like a prospect before his injury last season. Hudson now has a tough road ahead. Has possibilities as a situational runner or third down back if he is healthy.
