The Shallow Cross has the split end and tight end running drag routes. If man coverage is called, there is a natural pick between them. Generally one of them will get open. For this video breakdown, we are going to change things up a bit.

The defensive coverage call for each of the bump-n-run man beaters we show this, we run Nickel Normal – 2 Man Under.

Ideally we want to pass the ball to the slot receiver before he gets to left hash mark.

Final Thoughts

In this video breakdown, we show a two other receivers we look to throw to is the flanker isn’t open. Also, this same slot motion used is this write up can be effective with other pass routes as you shall see in the Slot Corner breakdown.
