Hackett, Chris

Card: Sage 2015
Acquired: 2016, Gunderson Trade

Chris Hackett played for the TCU Horned Frogs from 2012-2014 at defensive back and safety. His best season came in 2014, when he posted 75 total tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, 6 passes defended, and 7 interceptions for 131 yards. Over his career at TCU he posted 224 total tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, 11 passes defended, 1 fumble recovery, and 12 interceptions for 154 yards. Chris declared early and headed to the NFL.  Scouts were mixed about his talent at the next level, and an unimpressive combine sealed his fate.

Hackett was not selected in the 2015 NFL draft. ¬†He’d sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but was released during final cutdowns. Later that year, Hackett was signed by the Oakland Raiders to their practice squad. He’d be released during the 2016 preseason. Currently he’s a free agent.
