Photo: Here's The Moment Christian Hackenberg Found Out He Was Drafted

Christian Hackenberg was one of the more hotly debated players in the entire NFL Draft, but he didn't have to wait until day three to find out where he will begin his pro career. The Penn State quarterback was taken 51st overall by the New York Jets, and judging by the photo he posted to Sqor from the moment he found out, he was pretty thrilled.

On the other side of the equation, the Jets posted video of the call placed to Hackenberg.


Hackenberg is definitely a project, but the Jets are in need of a quarterback to step in if they can't reach a deal with last year's starter, Ryan Fitzpatrick. We'll find out soon enough whether or not this is a good match.
