Wednesday morning, ESPN analyst Trent Dilfer said Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg projects as a top five NFL Draft pick. This in spite of the very average numbers the junior is posting this season.
Dilfer not so subtly blamed the Nittany Lion offense for any issues Hackenberg may be having.
"Once he gets out of that situation — which is not a good situation at Penn State — scouts and GMs and coaches will drool over Christian Hackenberg,” Dilfer said.
PSU coach James Franklin responded to the comments during a press conference after practice Wednesday.
