Scouting Report on Aaron Hernandez

by Mike Farrell - 06/19/2006
Hernandez is a wide receiver in a tight end’s body and has an impressive ability to make plays in traffic. He has excellent hands and goes up and gets the ball at its highest point. Hernandez has a high football IQ and finds soft spots in zone coverage. He’s good at coming back to his quarterback when he’s in trouble and is a very good blocker, an overlooked part of his game. Hernandez finds his spot and provides a big target. He has the speed to do damage after the catch and stretch the field. His ball skills are unique and his speed is deceptive, especially down the seam. Hernandez has a great work ethic, fights for every football and makes big plays out of errant passes with his ability. Hernandez has excellent body control and always gets himself in great position to catch the ball, especially in traffic. He has the skill set to play tight to the tackle or in the slot and could be a threat out of the backfield at times. Hernandez is a great safety net for any quarterback.
