Massachusetts coach Mark Whipple said Penn State sophomore QB Christian Hackenberg will be the No. 1 overall pick when he enters the draft.
"He's going to be the first player picked. If he could come out this year, he'd be the first player picked," Whipple said, adding that Hackenberg "just can make every throw. ... He's just got it all." Whipple was the Steelers' QB coach during Ben Roethlisberger's first three seasons in the league, and he has also been an offensive assistant with the Eagles and Browns (2011-12). Whipple's UMass squad travels to Penn State on Saturday. We'd accuse him of buttering Hackenberg up, but he's not the only one saying these things. A veteran AFC scout said last week that Hackenberg is "the top QB in college football," and NFL.com wrote that he is "generating the most buzz with NFL scouts" amongst quarterbacks. Sep 16 - 9:19 PM
