“In Complete Wide Receiver, Coach Norvell covers it all. Now he presents advice for wide receivers and their coaches in Complete Wide Receiver: Enhanced Edition, making it the go-to resource for success on the field. Designed for skill development and refinement, the 48 drills featured in Complete Wide Receiver: Enhanced Edition—complemented by 12 video clips—provide the tools wide receivers need to take their game to a new level.
To play wide receiver well, a player must possess a combination of physical traits. Most receivers can run under a pass and catch it, but it takes a truly special player to be able to consistently catch the ball in crowded situations. The thing about receivers, they can’t do their job without help from the quarterback and the play caller, and receivers who want the ball will always let the quarterback and play caller know about it.
On every running play, every offensive player is assigned to block a man. If everyone on offense makes his block and sustains it, the team should have a successful offensive play. An offensive skill player can get a knockdown by making a defender miss when the offensive player has the ball in his hands.
One of the biggest benefits to executing the pat-and-go drill every day is that the quarterbacks and receivers learn to throw and catch the ball outside the framework of the body. The receiver runs the route, the quarterback throws the ball, and the receiver catches it. After catching the ball, the receiver runs down the field and gives the ball to the quarterback on the other end of the field.
