NFL RUSH

The ability of an outside linebacker to defeat various blocks and make a lot of tackles begins with a proper stance. The outside linebacker is responsible to be a contain player and try to force plays back to the inside where he has teammates. 


The proper stance begins with a break-down position as you are standing upright and feet even and shoulder-width apart.  Take a half-step back with the outside foot keeping your feet shoulder width apart and keeping your weight evenly distributed on the balls of both feet.

 

Next, bend at your knees and lean forward at your waist. Your shoulders should be just in front of your feet and hips.  Keep your back straight and head up as you get into your stance.

 

The elbows need to stay inside with the hands extending upwards with palms up and in front of the chest with the fingers spread.
