Could Stuckey Be the Starter at Strong Safety for the Chargers?

Kansan reports that fourth round pick Darrell Stuckey could be the starter at strong safety for the Chargers now that Kevin Ellison is gone:

Fourth round pick Darrell Stuckey signed a four-year deal with the San Diego Chargers late last month and with the recent release of Kevin Ellison, San Diego’s primary strong safety last year, signs point to Stuckey becoming the starter. “It’s a dream come true,” he said. His main competition in camp at this point is Steve Gregory, but Stuckey has the overall coverage ability, making him the early favorite. Stuckey said he practiced on both the first and second team, so he wasn’t about to dub himself the starter yet. The team is now on vacation for a couple of weeks after the completion of organized team activities. The San Diego Chargers play the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football September 13, at Arrowhead Stadium’s season opener. To play in his hometown the first game of the season in that atmosphere, he said, is like a gift from God. “This is what you wanted to become,” Stuckey said. “And all you can do is cherish it and not take it for granted.”
