25 Young NFL Players Who Already Look Like Busts

25. Christian Hackenberg

Drafted: Round 2/Pick 51 (2016)

The legend of Hackenberg dates back to high school when he was a highly-touted recruit. He never was excellent at Penn State — though his set of physical tools were very evident. The Jets drafted Hackenberg with the thought that he’d save their franchise. After two years with the Jets, Hackenberg — who never saw the field once — was traded to Oakland for a 7th-round pick. He then spent minimal time with the Raiders, Eagles, and Bengals before featuring for the Memphis Express of the now-defunct AAF. At 24 years of age, he’s currently without a job.
