If any of you caught the Sugar Bowl today, Florida's TE Aaron Hernandez played like a beast. I would love to see us draft him. I believe he's projected to get drafted in the 1st round. Do you guys think he'd be worth using our 1st round pick on?

He's got great hands and he runs like a running back with the football, breaking tackles, making guys miss, and fighting for the extra yard every time he gets the ball. He's fast for his size. He's big enough to be a good blocker, and would line up awesomely across from Fasano with Fasano being the primary blocking TE (basically Hernandez takes up the role David Martin filled for us last year). I think he's worth our first rounder. I think this guy is going to be really good in the NFL.

Hell no. Dude has some serious issues blocking. He's a big physical body, great hands, smart player and I like him a lot but you can' justify spending the first round pick on him. The tight end position is not a glaring issue like wide receiver and linebacker needs are. We're much better off waiting until the fourth round to select Jimmy Graham at tight end.

I made a thred on this guy about 10 days ago and everyone seems to think he cant block....I'm not so sure he should be cast aside so quickly.

It's pretty obvious. I'm not casting him aside. I think he's a great player and I'm the #1 Gator Hater here. Hernandez is a great talent. But spending our first roun pick on him is a waste.

Sorry, yeah Aaron Hernandez. I haven't seen him much this year, but I've watched some of the Gator games and football draft talk and he is mentioned as one of the best TE's coming out of college and I thought he was mentioned as projected to go in the 1st round. Actually, he's ranked #1 on this site: http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=68947&draftyear=2011&genpos=FB

From what I've seen, I think he has the athletic skill set to be special at the TE position in the NFL. Like a Dallas Clark, Shannon Sharpe type TE...The guy catches everything and has ran a 4.52 40. So for people saying we need a WR, the guy can play WR! I saw on another site that he's actually projected 2nd/3rd round (I can't see him dropping to us in the 3rd), so what about us using our 2nd round on him?

Has he even declared for the draft yet?

He'll declare. With the status of Urban Meyer being uncertain, Hernandez will forgo his Senior season.

I've seen Hernandez play a good bit this season and the guy just keeps impressing. Great hands, quickness, good routes and nice seperation all result in a player in the mould of Jason Witten or Dallas Clark, at least in the receiving game. His blocking is an issue no doubt, but its something he will improve on who ever drafts him.

Is he worth a first rounder? I dont think so, especially with the other needs we have on the team. But if he fell to the second, then yes I think he would be value there.

Drafting a TE in the first with our defensive problems would be a huge mistake. I doubt we draft a WR in the first but I would do that before I would draft a TE there.

FS, OLB, ILB and NT need to be taken care of first!

I'd rather go with TE Dennis Pitta of BYU in the third or possibly 4th round.

I would take Gresham, McCoy, Graham, or Dickson before even looking at Dennis Beck.

ive seen A LOT of this kid and he is the next best thing at TE and im not just saying that because im a Gator fan. I do agree #12 is a reach for him, and we do have way more pressing needs on the phins, but i would love to add him to this team if possible. If hes there in the 2nd rd we MUST get him. this kid can catch, and run after the catch like a WR.

We need a Field General in Defense, someone with attitude and skill....No more projects
My choice? Rolando McClain...

I can tell you right now he wont fall to 12...

If he plays lights out against Texas, I'd see him gone in the top 5.

if we can't somehow get Berry or McClain i'd trade out of the first for as many 2nd & 3rd rounders i could get and just keep drafting linebackers & safeties with one nt somewhere. either that or switch to a 4-3 cause i'm tired of the defense getting jacked.
