Hernandez Leaving for NFL
Gators All-America tight end Aaron Hernandez is leaving school early and entering the NFL draft. Hernandez made his announcement Wednesday, on the fourth anniversary of his father's death. He is the second Florida underclassman to make the jump to the NFL, joining cornerback Joe Haden. Several more could join them, including defensive end Carlos Dunlap and offensive linemen Mike and Maurkice Pouncey.
Hernandez had a team-high 68 catches for 850 yards and five touchdowns this season. He became the first Southeastern Conference player to win the Mackey Award, given annually to the nation's top tight end. Hernandez finishes his career with 111 catches for 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns.
