His accuracy got better but he did not face the same chaos as Hackenburg. I mention this guy because he is everyone's darling at the moment. But his pro accuracy is much better than what he ws in college.
I am not arguing that Hackenburg will be any good. Just that to continue to rip him without him playing even a single NFL game is not fair. From all indications he is football smart, works very hard and he has an elite skill set and prototypical size. He also had a GREAT freshmen year as true freshmen before the chaos at Penn State. AND I think it showed a lot about his character to stay there and not transfer during their probation period. Is that worth a second after his regression as a sophomore and Junior? Up for debate but he will be if he turns into a starter which NOBODY knows if he will or will not.

I could be wrong, but I don't think QBs accuracy typically gets better in the NFL when the defenses get better...and even as a freshman it was still below 60% so not that great
I do think it's telling that he couldn't smell the field even in such a disaster of a season...their plan of carrying 4 QBs made no sense because it meant that as the #4 he didn't even get any reps in practice, so I get meetings and stuff, but I just don't see how it really helped to develop him
We will never know obviously but he was not expected to be drafted that high....there's a good chance we could have gotten him with a third
Second round picks should be contributors not projects
I hope the kid succeeds and Mac is proven right, I really do, but I'm not optimistic on that possibility yet

who revealed where he ranked had him 4th or fifth. Logan Thomas an other over
drafted bum went in the fourth. Thomas had a stronger arm and was a better athlete.
The Bills are trying him at TE. Has Trump like baby hands and the pig flies out like
a knuckle ball
