Will Christian Hackenberg Boom or Bust for the New York Jets?

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.
