Once thought to be a top-5 pick, this potential starting QB has been horrendous in practice Twitter Screen Shot

When the New York Jets drafted Christian Hackenberg in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, they were hoping to get the quarterback who was a potential top-5 pick after his freshman year.

Instead, Hackenberg has yet to play a down in the NFL, and he remains wildly inconsistent in practice.

A video from a recent Jets practice shows Hackenberg misfiring on a throw and hitting a reporter on the sideline.

Hackenberg has missed on several throws during OTAs despite not going up against a defense.

The Jets’ quarterback competition is between Hackenberg, Bryce Petty, and veteran Josh McCown. No wonder one executive called the Jets’ roster one of the worst he’s ever seen.
