Quarterback Easton Stick, North Dakota State

Over the last couple of seasons, the Bears have only carried two quarterbacks on their 53-man roster. In 2017, Trubisky’s backup was Mike Glennon, and ultimately became Mark Sanchez. Last year, Chase Daniel was brought in for that role and will assume the backup spot once again for 2019.

Beyond this season, though, the Bears need to start game-planning for a future backup, should Daniel not return. It’s one of the most valuable positions in all of football, as we saw come to fruition last year when Trubisky was hurt.

One kid who may not end up being drafted, yet presents some intrigue, is Easton Stick out of North Dakota State.

Stick was a three-year starter following Carson Wentz, and brings tons to the table. First off, he’s a born leader — that’s way up top on the list of desirable traits to have in any quarterback, even your backup.

Second, Stick has experience in a pro-style offense. He is comfortable running RPOs and running an offense such as the Bears’ scheme. He not only threw for a respectable 28 touchdowns last season, but also ran for 17 of his own. He’s mobile, which is a must in Chicago’s offense. As an undrafted kid, Stick would be more than worth bringing to training camp in an attempt to stash.
