Beat: Zach Sudfeld could play in an "Aaron Hernandez type" role

Boston Herald - [Full Article]

Patriots TE Zach Sudfeld is listed at 225 pounds, so he's hardly cut from the same cloth as Rob Gronkowski. Yet, Sudfeld's receiving ability should put him in a position to succeed in an Aaron Hernandez type of role, and Sudfeld has even improved enough as a blocker to earn more chances to stay on the field in one-tight end formations.

Fantasy Impact: 

Sudfeld is a good handcuff for Rob Gronkowski owners and could graduate to a larger role in the Patriots offense. Other than Kenbrell Thompkins and Danny Amendola, the WR corps seems to be unsettled, so if the Pats want to play two-TE once Gronk returns, Sudfeld is the obvious choice. He's an interesting upside pick in the later (10th-13th) rounds.
