Hernandez quickly became a big part of the Patriots offense in his rookie season. The tight end from Florida finished 2010 with 45 catches for 563 yards and six touchdowns. The season did take a toll on Hernandez, who underwent hip surgery in the offseason. He should be 100% healthy when the season starts and ready to pick-up where he left off last season. While fellow New England tight end Rob Gronkowski is the Pats best redzone threat, Hernandez is more of a yardage guy. Still, Hernandez's ability to flex-out and play like a wide receiver allows him to stay on the field when New England's in the redzone. Look for about the same statistical output from Hernandez in 2011.
