To teach defensive backs how to read the quarterbacks eyes and drive on the ball when in zone coverage.
- You’ll need two WRs and a passer, as well as a line of DBs.
- The first DB in line will stand 15 yards in front of the QB, with the wide receiver 5-10 yards apart 10 yards downfield.
- The QB will take his drop, and the DB will begin to backpedal.
- When the QB plants, he will turn his shoulders and eyes toward one of the WRs.
- The DB must read the QB plant, and drive on the ball as the QB releases the pass.
- The DB must then intercept the ball and accelerate upfield.
- There are two keys to making an ideal break on the ball: the eyes and the feet.
- The DB should have his eyes on his QB on the backpedal, the WR on the break, and the ball as he accelerates.
