Eagles to hold private workout for Christian Hackenberg


The Eagles Quarterback workout tour is showing no signs of coming to an end just yet. According to Adam Caplan, the birds will be hosting a private workout for Christian Hackenberg next week.


Hackenberg is one of the more interesting Quarterback prospects in this years draft. The Penn State talent flourished under Bill O’Brien before declining under a new system with much weaker talent surrounding him. During his three years at Penn State, he failed to complete more than 60% of his passes in all three.

Hackenberg is mobile, has a solid frame and has shown the world numerous times that he can make NFL throws. The problem is that his impressive leadership is often thwarted by a failure to handle his frustrations calmly and possessing a very “diva” kind of mindset.

When the pocket collapses, Hackenberg tends to struggle as he needs a lot of space to operate successfully. The fundamentals are there but if you’re going to blame a Head Coach for your inefficiency..you had better shine in private workouts.

The Eagles will have worked out:

Jared Goff
Carson Wentz
Kevin Hogan
Paxton Lynch
Christian Hackenberg

in the space of a week if this report is true, confirming our earlier story that the Eagles would be working out up to 6 Quarterbacks in the run up to the draft.
