Christian Hackenberg doomed to fail with New York Jets

The New York Jets selected Christian Hackenberg No. 51 overall in the 2016 NFL Draft, which is probably the worst possible thing that could have happened to the Penn State product. A guy with all the physical tools teams want at the quarterback position, Hackenberg has a fatal flaw: He is not an accurate passer. People will point to the fact that Hackenberg was hit a ton during...
