Essential Cornerback Footwork Drills


Focus on your defensive back technique when performing these drills. This is very important. Don’t just go through the motions here or during any of your football training drills:

  • Stay low.
  • Don’t “step in the bucket” (keep your feet underneath you, not too wide).
  • Always drive hard out of your breaks

And end each break with at least a 10-yard burst

Great defensive back technique can be the difference between getting beat and making the play.
