“All In” Wide Receiver: Noose Drill

Feb 6, 2012 | Pass Game Mechanics, Position Groups, Wide Receivers

The "Noose Drill" will be used during pre-practice as a warm-up drill that works all of the fundamentals that we expect our receivers to master. The drill is meant to be run between 60% and 70% speed to emphasize/exaggerate the different skills and techniques. Once the basics are understood, the QB can work a variety of variations to provide a different look for the receivers.


  1. Cones are set up five yards apart (Pic. 1).

  2. QB with center (or snapping WR) set up 5 yards from the middle cone.

  3. Each QB should have two balls for this drill.

  4. WR’s form lines behind the wide cones.
