Penn State QB Declares For Draft, Thanks Everyone Except HC



This marriage never had a chance.

Penn State junior quarterback Christian Hackenberg declared for the 2016 NFL Draft today after the Nittany Lions 24-7 loss to Georgia in the Taxslayer Bowl.

Hackenberg had a really good freshman season in 2013 under then-head coach Bill O’Brien — who employed a pro-style offense that fit the gunslinger skills.

After James Franklin came in from Vanderbilt — Hackenberg struggled the next two years in the zone-read, spread offense.

Today when Hackenberg announced his decision, the quarterback thanked a lot of people, but left Franklin’s name out.

Hackenberg, a junior, is Penn State’s all-time leader in yards passing (8,457) and touchdowns (48) as well as completions, attempts and total offense.
