Chargers offense: Moving down

Most of those moving down are directly related to those previously mentioned who are moving up. Patton’s performance overrides anything the other receivers have done thus far, with every other receiver on the roster he’s competing with (so not counting Scott and Davis) netting just seven total yards on one catch. Patton has given himself a massive lead thanks to a strong game, building off what reportedly has been a strong training camp as well.

If anyone needs to move down, it’s Trey Pipkins. The team’s third-round selection has been terrible thus far, constantly letting defenders run free at rookie quarterback Easton Stick. This is the second game in a row the young left tackle has allowed a hit on Stick, which makes it incredibly difficult for a quarterback to develop. But who is taking over for him? Blake Camper? Would the team express that much disgust in their rookie that they would demote him so quickly? It’s stock down for Pipkins for sure, but it remains to be seen whether it affects his spot on the depth chart.

Other than that, there aren’t too many moves down the roster. Stick didn’t have a great performance, but it doesn’t push him down anywhere. No one outside of Patton challenged competing members of the offense.
