Under Center: Take a 5 step drop.

Shotgun: Take a 3 step drop.

Read: X-Z-C

Read the X as you take the 5 step drop.

If the X gains inside leverage or wins over the top throw the ball to the Post.

If the defense bites inside on the Post or on the early path of the Z throw the Wheel route.

Throw this ball the same as a Go route. Out in front on to outside, never inside.

If the strong side defense sinks to take away the X and Z look for the Center coming back into your vision late.

X: Post

-Best release and get vertical quickly.

-At 10 yards nod outside and then break inside.

-Get inside across the face of the Defender to that side.

Center: Under Route

-Execute the snap and work to the weak sideline with tempo.

-At 7-8 yards depth plant and return back underneath,

-Stay flat to negative as you travel with pace back inside.

-Look for the ball as you cross back in front of the QB.

Z: Wheel Route

-Release flat first and take a path directly over where the X lined up.

-As you cross the LOS begin to work vertically.

-Establish a straight stem by the depth of 8 yards.

-From this point everything is executed as if running a Go route.
