This is a quiz designed for WRs to test their knowledge of the what kind of defensive looks they will see from the outside position. Answers will be located at the bottom. Hope this helps!
Question 1) When running an inside breaking route, and the DB is in zone coverage (5-7yds off) what area do you want to attack?
Question 2) When a DB is lined up outside shade of you, what can that mean?
Question 3) When a DB is in zone coverage how would you run a fade route?

Answer 1) You want to attack the “blind spot” as we like to call it. When a DB is in zone coverage he will be facing the QB with his front hip angled to you, his back will be to the sideline. That area between his back and the sideline is the blind spot, that is where you want to attack. If you can angle your stem, give a rocker step to that spot or any other kind of move… that will threaten him vertically and widen him. This will lead to more separation on your dig/post Route.
Answer 2) A DB will never play man coverage outside shade without safety help. So if he is lined up outside shade, know that he probably has safety help to the inside.
Answer 3) When a DB is in zone like we mentioned before, he is facing the QB. Chances are he will also be somewhat outside leverage. If he is outside leverage he will not let you run a fade to the outside unless we threaten him inside. So using a move we like to call a “vertical set” will get him to jump to the inside. Essentially that’s like a hard cut or a rocker step to the inside to get the DB to sit and bite. Then that creates space back out for you to run your fade.
