NFL Media analyst Chase Goodbread believes Penn State junior QB Christian Hackenberg needs to release the ball faster if he's going to fulfill his potential.
Said Goodbread, "There is a fine line between showing patience in the pocket waiting for receivers to come open, and showing no sense for the oncoming rush and the value of a throwaway." The NFL.com writer cited former Alabama QB A.J. McCarron as an example of a quarterback who learned to get rid of the ball faster. Hackenberg has more talent than McCarron, but he threw 15 interceptions last season (to just 12 TD's) while completing only 55.8% of his passes. He'll need to make marked improvements if he's going to justify a high draft selection. Aug 12 - 3:14 PM
