Wide Receiver Find the QB Drill


The purpose of this drill is to work on quickness, and picking up the ball in mid air.


The QB’s stand in a circle facing each other with about 20 yards apart. The receiver stands in the middle by calling out one of the QB’s name, who then starts to throw the ball. At the same time the receiver turns and faces him. After the receiver catches the ball he tosses the ball back to that QB and gets ready for the next name. The first time the drill is run, the ball is thrown 1/2 speed to let the Receiver find out where each guy is positioned.
