QB Christian Hackenberg still on 'cloud nine' after call from Jets

Three days after being drafted by the New York Jets, Christian Hackenberg still is on "cloud nine" -- or so he tweeted Monday afternoon. The former Penn State quarterback shared the video of the moment he received the call from the Jets. Hey, if he goes on to become a star, this could be a great moment in Jets' history.

You probably noticed that former Jets quarterback Chad Pennington announced the pick at the draft in Chicago. It was fitting. Of the 11 quarterbacks drafted by the Jets since 2000, Pennington was the best.

Let's take a trip down memory lane, looking at the not-so-perfect 10 drafted before Hackenberg, including their starting record:

Pennington (2000) : 32-29

Brooks Bollinger (2003): 2-7

Kellen Clemens (2006): 4-5

Brad Smith (2006): 0-0*

Erik Ainge (2008): 0-0

Mark Sanchez (2009): 33-29

Greg McElroy (2011): 0-1

Geno Smith (2013): 11-18

Tajh Boyd (2014): 0-0

Bryce Petty (2015): 0-0

* Switched to wide receiver
