Joe - what depth do your corners play in your man coverages?

We mostly play press man, when we play Off Man usually it's 5 yds.

Joe -

I've never asked this so just want to confirm I have it right in terms of Man Cov matchups in your 4-4 (went all the way to empty quads (S4)):

Cover 0
- S1 = CB
- S2 = FS
- S3 = Sam
- S4 = Mike (or Will depending on athletes)
- W1 = CB
- W2 = Ram

Cover 1
- S1 = CB
- S2 = Sam
- S3 = Mike (or Will depending on athletes)
- S4 = Ram over? Curious how you would adjust to Quads in C1 - we face a team who uses it somewhat frequently
- W1 = CB
- W2 = Ram

Cover 5
- S1 = CB
- S2 = Sam
- S3 = Mike (or Will depending on athletes)
- S4 = Mike / Will
- W1 = CB
- W2 = Will

I try to keep M inside as much as possible. Again it will depend on personnel and ability.
