Quenton Nelson TextBook Power Pull
By FirstDown PlayBook on Sep 22, 2020

There is an old saying that goes something like “The more things change, the more they stay the same.” This week on the FirstDown PlayBook All 22 Tuesday the good old fashioned power run game shows up a lot.

One of the plays we will dissect today will be this one back power that the Colts ran against the Vikings on Sunday. Coach & Coordinator’s Keith Grabowski and FirstDown PlayBook will look at the the way the Vikings fit this staple run play as well as how the Colts block it up!

The focus, however, will be on the Colts’ left guard #56 Quenton Nelson. The Scouting Academy’s Dan Hatman analyzes this textbook pull technique from the two time Pro-Bowler for the Indianapolis Colts!

Watch this video to see how a one back power is run and how the pulling guard can impose his will to have it run in the A gap!
