  • Aaron Hernandez Scouting Report
    By Matt McGuire

    Strengths:
  • Very good, smooth athlete
  • Outstanding receiver after the catch
  • Nice hand-eye coordination
  • Shows ability to adjust to poorly thrown ball
  • Consistent, soft hands
  • Elusive with nice speed
  • Tough over the middle
  • Not an easy tackle
  • Great red-zone target
  • Terrific vision in open field
  • Prototypical H-Back or spread tight end



    Weaknesses:
  • Mediocre size
  • Very poor blocker; not interested or physical
  • Poor hand use when asked to fight in booth
  • Lacks polish as route runner
  • Not a good fit for every scheme
  • Character concerns
  • Wasn't asked to run many routes like dig, post, deep out

    Summary: Hernandez won't fit a lot of schemes that ask him to be an in-line blocker. He lacks the measurables and all-around skill set to go in the first round in my opinion, but a great 40 time and vertical could intrigue some team to take him late first. Hernandez has some very intriguing tools, but his greatest weakness is when he is taken off the field, the defense will likely know it's a running play. Hernandez lacks some polish and I don't expect him to be an immediate contributor.

    Player Comparison: Dustin Keller. Keller was a great receiving threat out of Purdue with below-average size for a tight end - a poor in-line blocker.
