No position has a bigger leap from college to the pros than quarterback. Not only are the defenses faster, smarter and quicker, but learning the NFL language can present challenges for QB’s coming from spread, no huddle college offenses.
Now Giants rookie quarterback Kyle Lauletta flew in to meet with newly signed Vikings signal caller Kirk Cousins for a pre-draft tutoring session on playing the position at the NFL level. Cousins put Lauletta on the whiteboard and explained how the same play Lauletta drew up is a staple in NFL offenses, and how different teams describe it in their playbook.
Cousins also pointed out that the same concepts that work within the play in college can be disrupted by faster, smarter NFL defenses. If you’re a football nerd that love x’s and o’s and quarterback play, this clip has your name written all over it.
