Will Christian Hackenberg Start at QB in 2016?

It’s not surprising snagged a quarterback in this draft, but few expected the team to opt for a traditional dropback passer with accuracy issues to potentially step right into the franchise quarterback role. While Hackenberg’s supporters will point to his promising freshman season under Bill O’Brien in a pro-style system as a harbinger of his potential, the skeptics wonder if a quarterback who has never completed 60 percent of his throws in a season can become a pinpoint passer at the highest level. Considering his slow trigger and penchant for taking sacks (104 in three college seasons), are hoping coordinator Chan Gailey can work his magic on a naturally gifted developmental who needs plenty of work on his footwork and fundamentals.
