Hack

It's one of the most embarrassing decisions from a FO ever. 

There is a long list of QB busts from the first round so there is zero chance a QB bust in the second round ranks high on the list of embarrassing FO decisions. Guys like Jamarcus Russell, Ryan Leaf, Tim Couch, Heath Shuler and many more are far bigger busts considering where they were drafted. 
Hack was an awful pick, but every year there are 2nd round picks that turn out to be complete zeros in the NFL just look at every other 2nd round pick of the Jets the last 20 years.

Hack is the first QB picked in the first 2 rounds to not ever take an NFL snap in over 30 years. 

You don't need to be a first round pick to be a colossal mistake.

So if he played one snap and threw an int it would have made it a better pick? A crap player is a crap player.

No QB with Christian Hackenberg's college resume has ever succeeded in the NFL.  Ever. 

And not only did he take Hackenberg in the 2nd round, he doubled down on him the next season too, passing on Mahomes and Watson in the process.

So yes, it was the worst draft pick in Jets history.  Because Macc actually thought that a guy with a 0 % chance of succeeding would be our franchise QB. 

The question wasn't whether it was the worst Jets draft pick of all time (which it wasn't) it was whether it was one of the worst moves by a Front office, which it wasn't in the top 100. 

The Bucs took a kicker in the 2nd round a couple of years ago who is now out of the league because he was so awful. There are hundreds of other examples.

Hack was awful. I am not defending him, but to suggest that a bad 2nd round pick is somehow worse than bad picks in the 5-10 picks of the draft is stupid.

Not really.  Not when Hackenberg had a 6th, maybe 5th round resume.  Taking a guy like that in the 2nd is worse than taking a shot on a highly-valued guy in the top 10 and having him bust. 

 As for the Bucs Kicker, its sad in itself that a 2nd round K is in the same conversation as a QB. 

 A bad, wasted pick is no different if it was wasted on a Tackle/Kicker/QB. 

And we didn't pass on Mahomes because we had Hack. We already knew he was horrible by then. We passed on Mahomes because the plan was to tank for one of the QBs in the Darnold class. Again, I am not upset about ending up with Darnold at the end of this process.
