LA Chargers depth chart, QB3: Easton Stick

Easton Stick has a unique following on Twitter, likely because of his really solid preseason play in 2019 in which he produced some highlight-reel plays with his legs. However, considering the fact that the Chargers had him practice at safety in 2019, I would not hold your breath and expect him to play much quarterback in 2020.

Stick is fine as a third-string quarterback, especially in the style of offense that the LA Chargers are implementing moving forward. He is someone who could come into the game if needed and not completely meltdown as he would fit very nicely in a run-heavy offense.

The Chargers could theoretically be creative with Stick in the same way that they can with Tyrod, utilizing something Charger fans have probably never seen: quarterback option runs.

Personally, I like the idea of using Easton Stick in a similar way as the New Orleans Saints use Taysom Hill. Having that kind of Swiss Army Knife would be great for the Chargers offense, especially one that is going to have to be more creative than before to be successful.

Will the Chargers do that? Probably not. Hill has the athleticism, speed and strength to be exactly what Hill is to the Saints but to the Chargers.

Ranking potential 2021 draft needs. Next

Stick will likely only play if there are injuries to both Taylor and Herbert, however, if it is the end of the season and the offensive line is looking horrible then it would not be totally surprising to see the Chargers throw him out there instead of Herbert. Doubtful, but possible.
