Play: Mesh Post (Version 1)

Setup:

  1. Max protect
  2. Put your RB/R1 receiver on a streak route

Reads:

  1. Your first read is the A/X receiver on the drag route
  2. The next look is to the B/circle receiver on the post
  3. Look to the X/square receiver on the drag

Overview:This is a great play.  There are so many routes coming to the middle of the field at the same time, it’s difficult to cover. Read the user and throw to the B/circle receiver for a big gain if the user does not cover it, if the user takes the post throw the drag to X/square or playmaker him up the field.
