Aaron Hernandez, TE, Florida

Hernandez emerged as arguably the best tight end of college football last season, catching 68 passes for 850 yards and five touchdowns. He also hauled in five TD passes as a sophomore in 2008, but the Florida Gator became a pass-catching weapon all over the field in 2009 and was Tim Tebow's favorite target. Hernandez earned First-Team All-America honors, and with a host of Florida players going pro, it is no surprise that Hernandez is turning his attention to the next level. "Aaron was one of the very best at his position that I have ever been around," said coach Urban Meyer. "He has been a key part of our success over the years, but now he has the opportunity to fulfill a lifetime dream by playing in the NFL. He has all of the tools to be successful at the next level." Those tools include a 6'2', 250-pound frame and speed under 4.6 in the 40-yard dash (he has been clocked as fast as 4.52). Hernandez is the essence of a pass-catching tight end. He knows how to get open and has great hands, while blocking is certainly not his specialty. He will have to improve in that department in order to become a real star in the NFL, but for now plenty of teams will covet him as a down-the-field weapon. Hernandez should go off the board no later than round three of April's draft; with a solid performance at the the combine, he could be a second-round selection.
