Talbot LB Play 3 – 2 Player
The MLB will play gap responsibility playing run 1st. Once the QB has cleared the depth of the RB(#3), and there is no run threat, the MLB will then adjust his drop to the release of #3.
#3 – outside release to flat: MLB will make “push” call to alert the outside linebacker to come off his reroute of #2 and expand to flat looking for #3 to flat. MLB will then push to #2s release carrying vertical to top of his zone (12 yards). MLB will wall #2 (keep inside leverage) on #2 and ping-pong his head and eyes back to QB to identify QBs upfield shoulder & elbow.
*Getting hands on receiver is very important in disrupting route timing.
*Eyes & identifying QBs upfield elbow & shoulder are essential to drop location.
