Quarterback Christian Hackenberg scrambled for a 7-yard touchdown run during third quarter action at Beaver Stadium on Nov. 23. Hackenberg has been named the Big Ten Conference’s Thompson-Randel El Freshman of the Year.

Hack is perhaps the most polarizing prospect of the 2016 class.

On this week’s episode of the Dynasty Pulse Podcast, heard every Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. EST on Blogtalkradio, Nick Wagner and Josh Johnson were joined by DFW’s own Dirty Mike Krafick as they identify the top prospects in the 2016 draft.
