Aaron                          Hernandez
Was tabbed the best tight end in 2009 by claiming the John Mackey Award...Also selected to the All-American First Team and the All-SEC First Team...Only started two seasons for the Gators, but he proved to be a reliable option in the passing attack...Ranked first on the team in receptions in 2009 with (68) and second in receiving yards (850)...The junior is extremely athletic and has the speed and quickness to create separation...His speed also gives him the ability to be a dangerous threat after the catch...Possesses a high footballIQ and his route running is above average...Lacks the prototypical size for a tight end at the next level, and his below average frame limits him as a blocker.
