Covering receivers crossing paths
« on: February 16, 2016, 10:30:16 PM »
Zach,

For some reason I either read someplace that Celina locks in and never switches in cases where WR might cross such as tandems, bunches or stacks. How do you deal with those illegal picks that refs might not call?

I believe there reasoning was that since they match up based on scouting reports that having a lesser athlete switch in that type of situation is more dangerous.


If so how do they line up to make sure they don't collide?

The simple answer is the jam off of the line of scrimmage.

If you can't jam your guy off the line  (bc he's off the line" your depth is deep enough so you don't get picked, close enough to attack on the run. 

They also drill this a lot... you might get it on short passes longer ones that single high is there to help.

The first two points are where you wanna start.
