Christian Hackenberg said he is "more comfortable" heading into his second season.
"Without a doubt, I think there’s a different level of confidence," Hackenberg said. "More comfortable in the situation, more comfortable walking in the building, more comfortable with the guys in the locker room, in the huddle." Hackenberg added he is not focusing on the competition for the starting job but rather the things he "can control." Josh McCown looks like the favorite to start right now, but the safe money is on Hackenberg seeing the field at some point in 2017.
