Michigan Wolverines: Notre Dame — Three Keys To Play Mobile QB
What Michigan defenders need to do this week against Everett Golson
1.) Is keeping him in the pocket. Getting your defensive linemen to stay in their lanes and always maintain proper outside leverage. On the edge this type of quarterback can kill a defense.2.) Is make him pull the ball down. This makes the quarterback one dimensional and much easier to defend.
3.) Keeping your underneath coverages at proper depth. Worse thing that can happen is if your linebackers drift too deep and give the quarterback space to operate.
Spying is always an option, and some teams will switch up that assignment between linebackers, safeties, and even 1-techs. Problem is spying opens zones, prevents reroutes jams, and gives the offense a numbers advantage. So you need to use wisely.
