Cover 2 DB Drills: Raheem Morris
Some cornerback drills care of Raheem Morris during the dominant years of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense featuring one of the most physical corners in recent memory, Ronde Barber.
There are some great stimulus-response drills to handle #1 receiver stems (inside, outside, vertical) and run-support leverage. This starts with individual work handling stems/breaks, then moves to leveraging specific routes (out of C2). With group work, these same recognition work is carried over and speeds up the “looking for work” process when #1 clears. The film concludes with team practice clips against Gruden’s offense (against Cover 2).
