In today’s video blog post, we continue to talk about agility drills for a winning defensive line, including the “Slalom”, “Every Foot” and the “Change of Direction” Drill. If you missed the first post, you can check it out here: Defensive Line Agility Drills – Part 1.
Agility Drills for the Defensive Line
This is another great lateral change of direction shuffle, that is excellent for working out the quads. At the end of this drill, you’re going to burst five yards.
Every Foot Drill
This drill is great for rhythm and coordination. The athlete is going to step over every bag leading with the onside foot, hitting both feet in every hole, while using good arm action. After the last bag, he’s going to turn and burst five yards.
Change of Direction Drill
The athlete is going to step over every bag leading with the onside foot, hitting both feet in every hole with good arm action. Once he clears the last bag, he’s going to play off a cut block.
When you play off the cut block off the orange ball, you want to see his eyes down and then he’s going to pop that ball back to you. He’s then going to do the same thing back through.
