The Scramble Drill
by LaVell Edwards

LaVell Edwards has earned his spot as one of the greatest college football coaches in the history of the sport - retiring with 257 wins - sixth all-time. BYU's passing tradition is legendary, and Coach Edwards has developed as many true throwing quarterbacks as anyone in college football. In fact, BYU has acquired a national reputation as the "Quarterback Factory." He has coached 33 All-Americans, a Heisman Trophy winner, and nine NFL first-round draft picks.

The scramble Drill starts with the QB and Receivers lined up to run a pass play versus air, with no defense present.

Scramble Drill

Purpose: To teach quarterbacks and receivers how to react on a pass play when the pass protection breaks down and the quarterback is forced to run out of the pocket.

Equipment: Football

Procedure:

1. Quarterbacks and Receivers align in the formation called. On cadence, the players begin to execute the play called.

2. As QB begins his drop, a coach aligned downfield in the secondary points right or left.

3. The QB then scrambles in that direction, making sure he gets out of the pocket, but does not cross the line of scrimmage.

4. The receivers should immediately adjust their routes to get into the QB’s line of vision. They must also maintain some spacing to keep the defense spread. One of the receivers should get shallow, one should get deep and another should try to adjust to a depth in between. Receivers on the opposite side should run crossing patterns and again get into the QB’s line of vision.

As the QB drops and the receivers run off the ball into their routes, the coach indicates a direction and the QB begins to scramble in that direction, simulating his being flushed from the pocket by the pass rush.

Coaching points:

1. Coach should always work the drill in both directions. QB should get reps to the right and to the left.

2. QB must always begin drill with a good drop, emphasizing proper depth and ball position during the drop. Coach should also vary the depth of the drops, ie, 3- steps, 5- step, play -action etc.

3. QB must work to complete the throws to the receivers at the various depths. This means sometimes he should practice throwing the deep ball, sometimes he should throw to the middle receiver and sometimes he should dump the ball to the shallow receiver.

When the receivers see the quarterback begin to scramble, they must adjust their routes to get into his line of vision, trying to maintain spacing so the quarterback has someone shallow, someone deep and someone in between to get the ball to. This adjustment on the run only comes with doing this drill over and over.

4. It is very important to mark the line of scrimmage so the QB always remains behind the line as he throws the ball.

5. The coach should be sure the QB understands that he can run the ball if the opportunity presents itself and there are no defenders in position to stop a first down or a touchdown run.
