Any disparity in Gary's and Hudson's arm-length (which, in any event, has substantially less effect on one's bench press than people seem to think) is mitigated by the disparity in their respective chest/back mass; Gary's barpath probably isn't much longer than Hudson's.
That is absurdly strong for a ~210lb non-strength athlete.
Since 2006, only 10 defensive backs/safeties have exceeded 25 reps at the NFL Combine. Most were significantly heavier than Hudson, and all presumably trained the bench press-- specifically, the 225 rep test--extensively in preparation for the Combine.

As with all things fitness-related, the appropriateness of a program depends on your goals. I imagine that, in light of your particularly lean physique, you'd like to put on some muscle mass. If so, HIIT sessions--which are primarily valued for their tendency to promote fat-loss and muscle-retention--would be a perfectly fine ancillary component of your training (e.g., for heart health and general physical preparedness), but they should not be the centerpiece; your foundation should be heavy compound lifts (e.g., squat, bench, deadlift, overhead press) fueled by a significant caloric surplus from relatively clean food sources.

We talk about "outgrowing the position" a lot, and I don't think it's a concern grounded in fact. A player may continue to grow taller in his college years, but if a player is "accidentally" gaining weight without increasing in height -- regardless of the weight's composition in fat and muscle -- that would be an incredible indictment on the training staff.
