ESPN New York expects Jets QB Christian Hackenberg to make starts in 2017.
Buckle up. Hackenberg was so bad as a rookie the Jets were loath to even give him quality practice reps, but reporter Rich Cimini expects 2017 to be about "(finding) out about (Hackenberg)." An anonymous Jets source told the New York Daily News in January that he already knew about Hackenberg, declaring he would "never make it." Hackenberg was viewed as a colossal reach at No. 51 overall last spring and did nothing as a rookie, either in practice or the preseason, to change that perception.
