Bring in an established C and then if Hudson comes back healthy, he can play G, where we know he's familiar. At that point you have some versatility if the C gets hurt or loses effectiveness.
If you just bring in a veteran G and Hudson struggles again or doesn't recover from his knee injury that well, you're up shits creek. For the sake of versatility and as a CYA maneuver, I think the interior lineman has to be capable of playing C.
I agree. I think it would be very wise for us to draft a C with our 4th round pick. I think that Khaled Holmes or Graham Pocic would be a nice insurance policy and both should be there.
Then again, if Barrett Jones is there at 34, it would be extremely difficult to overlook him. That guy is going to be a pro bowler for years.
