Teaching your Weak Hook Defender in Cover 3

I use a clip from the Texans to show how a good Weak Hook defender can eliminate vertical routes in Cover 3, which is one of the coverage's most important aspects.

In this clinic, we discuss:

  • What is a 3-Up defender in Cover 3?

  • How does the play of the Weak Hook defender translate from 3x1 to 2x2?

  • The concept of ‘2-Up

  • A good Weak Hook defender eliminates routes for the offense.

  • Review a clip of the Texans’ defense vs. the Colts’ offense
