Undrafted Packers RB Tyler Hudson is fighting for a roster spot

GREEN BAY, WI. — Green Bay Packers tight end Tyler Hudson will have no shortage of motivation in Friday night’s preseason opener at the 49ers.

In three seasons at Iowa, Hudson rushed for 2,551 yards, caught 70 passes and finished with 3,116 yards and 19 touchdowns. At the scouting combine, he ran his 40 in 4.42 seconds.

NFL teams love running backs who can catch and have the speed to carry the ball to the house. But Hudson was not among the 22 running backs drafted in April.

“I really feel like I’m better than the other running backs that have been drafted,” Goodson said Wednesday. “But hey, every team has an opinion and every coach has a guy he likes. It’s out of my control. I just have to control what I can control and be where my feet are every day. That’s what I do.”
