Hudson's ejection occurred during the second half, meaning that he will miss the first half of Michigan's Big Ten opener against Nebraska Sept. 22. Given Hudson's combination of versatility and skill, he won't be an easy player to replace. Sep 15 - 6:00 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline notes that Michigan junior S Khaleke Hudson "plays with great explosion and speed."

Hudson (6'0/205) is a coach's darling, with Pauline passing along that the UM staff views him as their second-best draft prospect behind Rashan Gary. The analyst sees a little something something in the junior's film which reminds him of former program star Jabrill Peppers, who earlier manned Hudson's hybrid "viper" position in Ann Arbor. And like Peppers, Pauline believes that Hudson is going to face varying opinions on just what his fit might be at the next level. The analyst stamps him with a third-round grade at this juncture.

ESPN's Dan Murphy lists Michigan junior S Khaleke Hudson as the Wolverines most exciting player to watch in 2018.

You typically don't see safeties considered "exciting players" outside of some notable exceptions, but Hudson is a notable exception who isn't a typical safety. As Murphy mentions, Hudson (6'0/205) is perfectly made for the "viper" position, and had 18 tackles for loss in 2017. "He has a couple of NFL prospects in front of him," Murphy writes, "but his athleticism will make it hard to look elsewhere when he's on the field."

Michigan sophomore S Khaleke Hudson didn't miss a tackle against the run in 2017 according to Pro Football Focus.

Hudson (6'0/205) made 30 stops for the Wolverines and didn't miss a single tackle in 293 run snaps, according to PFF. He also set a Big Ten record this season with eight tackles for loss. Not a lot went well for Michigan in a disappointing 8-4 season, but Hudson replaced former "Viper" S Jabril Peppers admirably, and will be a highly discussed name for the 2019 draft.

Michigan sophomore S/LB Khaleke Hudson recorded eight tackles for loss against Minnesota, a Big Ten record.

The Wolverines won 33-10. Hudson was tasked with replacing Jabrill Peppers this season, and he has performed at a high level. Peppers played in the slot and as a linebacker at Michigan, very different than his current role with the Browns. It is an important piece for Michigan, allowing them to matchup in personnel against a variety of offenses. Hudson has stepped up.

Michigan sophomore S Khaleke Hudson is likely to be the heir apparent for Jabrill Peppers.

Peppers' old "Viper" position is a hybrid spot that asks its tenant to be both a blitzing linebacker and a safety. The 6-foot, 205-pound Hudson has similar dimensions to Peppers and will wear Peppers' old No. 7 jersey, so wafts of nostalgia will be heavy early on.
