Scouting Report: Strengths
  • When used downfield, Hudson shows the ball-tracking skills and hand-eye coordination to make the adjustment on underthrown balls and back-shoulder throws.
  • Hudson has quick feet and good body control, allowing him to gear down and quickly get in and out of cuts. His hands are good, and he’s a creative runner after the catch with the elusiveness to slip tackles in space.
  • Has long arms to stiff-arm defensive backs in the open field. Willing to lower his pads to run through tackles for extra yardage. Goes over the middle, can spin out of tackles and take the big hit.
  • He’s coordinated with soft, reliable hands, and he shows the ability to adjust to balls thrown behind him, as well as a knack for digging out low throws.
  • He’s a precise route runner, creating separation when used on quick outs and stop patterns in college. Hudson has good stop-start ability and lateral agility.
  • Has the strong hands any NFL wide receiver coach and quarterback would covet. Tracks the deep ball over either shoulder and brings in passes fluidly without breaking stride downfield.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • While Hudson has the athleticism to be a catch-and-run threat, he never seemed comfortable catching, gathering, and transitioning to a runner.
  • Hudson fights hard for the ball, but he too often fights to catch it; there are a few double catches on his highlight reel. It shows up in contested-catch situations in the red zone.
  • He’ll have to develop a better feel for sitting down against zone coverage.
