Los Angeles Chargers select QB Easton Stick

What? Why?

NCAA Football: East/West Shrine Game Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports

With the 166th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, Tom Telesco and the Los Angeles Chargers have selected quarterback Easton Stick out of North Dakota State.

After signing Tyrod Taylor in free agency, the Chargers still elected to burn a fifth round pick on a developmental quarterback that you’ve never heard of before right now. Stick is not a player that the Chargers should ever hope to see on an NFL field. He is a dual threat type, but he lacks the kind of arm talent you need to succeed at the next level. This is a completely wasted pick for a team that is trying to win in 2019, and the likelihood of him ever providing any value whatsoever is slim to none. This is a fascinating choice by a front office that had been having an excellent draft.

Let us know in the comments what you think about this pick.
