The ‘Run-Up, Escape Drill’ teaches our quarterbacks three important fundamentals – ball security, vision downfield, and launching while trying to escape or avoid pressure. The drills we practice are the drills that we witness our players performing as we watch game tape. The Run-Up, Escape Drill is one drill which we see over and over as we watch game film and then rep daily in practice.
We can incorporate under center drops (5 or 7-step) or shotgun drops (3 or 5-step) into the drill. We start by placing targets downfield. You can use your favorite pattern possessions as seen in diagram 1. We also place two edge rushers on each edge of the pocket. If the rushers contain, the QB simply runs up and throws to whichever target the coach points to pre-snap (Diagram 2). The target raises his hand after the QB’s run up movement.
