The modern Linebacker’s duties do not only cover the tasks of stopping the run through “his” gap and covering his area or receiver on pass plays. The modern Linebacker is also again and again involved in the pass rush schemes. Be it as a blitzing linebacker from his original lineup position as a “line backer” or from a clear pass rush position directly on the line of scrimmage. Therefore the linebackers’ daily drill routine must not miss the linebacker pass rush drills.
