Following an impressive junior campaign capped by a 9-111-1 day in the Sugar Bowl blowout win, Florida tight end Aaron Hernandez is likely to seriously weigh whether he'll enter the NFL Draft or return for his senior season.

With a whole bunch of losses on offense and defense in Gainesville next season, there may be a little reloading taking place. And now may be the time for Hernandez to move on as it's hard to see him improving his draft stock in 2010.
