Penn State QB Christian Hackenberg reportedly blamed his lack of production in college during his sophomore and junior season on the shift from former head coach Bill O' Brien to current head coach James Franklin during at least a couple of pre-draft interviews, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: If true, it's obviously a bad look for Hackenberg. Front offices want quarterbacks to deflect credit and accept blame, regardless if the prospect may actually be correct in his assessment. Hackenberg's last two seasons have scared some teams enough that he will probably be a Day 2 pick, and he'll likely be asked to be a backup this year no matter where he is drafted.
