The Lead Draw – Fox 2/3 Draw and an overview of the Draw PackageIn any passing offense, you must have the ability to negate any strong pass rush. There are three solid ways to do that: a strong running game,screens, and draws. And the purpose of this article is to explain how touse the draw play to negate the pass rush, but also to give added valueand a threat with the passing game.The idea behind the Lead Draw is very simple: pull up the defensivelinemen in their pass rushes and use their aggressiveness against themso that you can slip the draw play to a back. We want to take the defensiveends up field and kick them out, and push the defensive tackles to oneside. This will allow us to use our fullback to isolate a inside linebacker,and possibly break a play. In the process, we want to cut off the pursuitof the rest of the linebackers. Depending on the front, by pushing thedefensive tackles in the 43 defense to one side, or the nose tackle in the34 defense, we create a cavity for the fullback to have room to push theinside linebacker to one side or the other. The ball carrier will read thisas his key block on where to go with the ball from here.As we draw up the blocking schemes versus the different fronts, you willsee a great similarity between the way we block the 34 defense and the 43Under defense. The rules are almost identical due to the proximity of thedefensive tackle and the weak side outside linebacker.
