Is Christian Hackenberg the Answer for the Jets?

It is possible the New York Jets did something brilliant last Friday in their second-round selection of Penn state quarterback Christian Hackenberg in the 2016 NFL Draft. Hackenberg played very well as a freshman under former Penn State coach Bill O'Brien, but then got caught up in a cycle of terrible offensive line play and questionable play-calling and bad body language. However, it's worth noting that despite those flaws, Hackenberg still carries an undeniable amount of talent. ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper says, "I think he needs time. Hopefully, he's not forced to be the guy, or he's going to be a bust. If they handle him properly, manage him properly, I think he's got a chance three years down the road to surface."
