3 Linebacker Drills to Improve Your Overall Performance

  1. Angle Tackling

In this drill you will set our four cones in a triangle fashion and you will have a runner and a tackler. The runner will run to one of the cones at an angangle tacklingle and the tackler will meet the runner at the cone and he will correctly tackle the runner.

2. Point and Roll

In this drill the linebackers will line up on a line and a coach will be in front of them. The linebackers will get in a bear crawl form and when the coach blows the whistle they will start chopping their feet. When the coach points a certain way the linebackers will roll in that direction quickly. then the coach will do that a few more times and when the coach points forward the linebackers will do a flip roll forward and sprint about ten yards.

3. Shed and Throw

The purpose of this drill is to be able to develop proper position to defeat a potential blocker and make the tackle. You will get a three man sled and have the linebackers line up in front of them. The coach will be standing about 10 yards away when the coach blows the whistle they will grab the dummy and they will throw it to the side.
