1.QB takes his presnap stance2.shouts out a short cadence3.simulates the snap and takes ao3-step dropo5-step dropo7-step drops1.ending with a throwing motion without actually throwing the ball.
In teaching period each QB should do it alone, but when using this drill as a routine drill, all QBs can line upabout 3 to 5 yards apart, with one QB giving the cadence and all QBs doing the drop.
Coaching Points
(everything is explained for right-handed QBs, for left-handed QBs you have to exchange left and right)
The first step has to be taken with his right foot and should be big and directly behind the left footso that the drop is straight backwards.
While taking his first step the QB turns by bringing his right hip, shoulder and elbow back toaccelerate his separation from the LOS
The last two steps have to be shorter, so that QB is in good body-control position and ready tothrow on his last step.
QB should take the ball up in front of his right armpit with his first step, holding it tight with bothhands.
During the drop the ball should stay put in front of his right armpit, while the elbows shouldhang/swing loose to improve balance
QB should always look over his left shoulder downfield
