New York Jets’ Wayne Chrebet & friends: Greatest slot WRs in NFL history

It’s 3rd-and-7. You represent the slot wideout on the right side of the formation. X to the right, the Z and the tight end (Y) on the other side. Defensively, it’s a nickel. The nickelback is in a firm press, straight up technique with his hands ready to jab.

Your quarterback already knows presnap. You know the quarterback knows he’s going to you. Your job is to beat the man coverage and get open on the slant.

The center snaps the ball. You take a left step, drive hard to the right just before the release to the left in conjunction with an underneath rip to beat the press.
