Scouts Inc. sees big role for Hernandez

In his most recent piece, Matt Williamson of ESPN's Scouts Inc. breaks down the pass-catching targets of four teams. He leads off with the Patriots.

"The more I look at this wide receiver and tight end situation, the more I like it," Williamson writes, before focusing on one player he believes could be an X-factor: rookie tight end Aaron Hernandez.

"Although most expect second-year wideout Julian Edelman to fill Welker's role in the veteran's absence, I don't think you can discount the versatility that Aaron Hernandez brings to the table as a "move" tight end," Williamson writes.

In the Insider piece, Williamson goes on to explain how the presence of Hernandez could help the Patriots create favorable matchups.
