In the 2009 NFL draft, the Kansas City Chiefs used the third overall pick on DE Tyson Jackson. Two years later, some Chiefs fans wish that pick had been used on NT B.J. Raji, who's playing well for the Green Bay Packers at a (former) position of need for KC.
One Chiefs draft pick would probably prefer to play with Raji than against him. Rodney Hudson, KC's second round pick, trained at IMG Academies this offseason and in a Q&A on their website he identified Raji, while he was at Boston College, as the toughest player to block in his college career.
B.J. Raji. Most people think big guys are slow, but he was big, athletic and could run. That's why he's doing so well in the NFL right now.
And you know what? Hudson can't escape Raji.
He and the Chiefs will face Raji and the Packers not once but twice this season in both the preseason and regular season.
