Setup:

  1. Put the B/O receiver on a fade

Reads:

  1. The first read on the play is the B/O receiver on the fade route
  2. Then look for the A/X tight end on the drag route
  3. Next, look for the Y/Triangle receiver on the crossing route
  4. Finally, find the X/Square receiver his route over the middle

Overview: This is a very diverse play that is going to beat both man and zone coverage. The fade makes it nearly impossible for the defense to use a Cover 2 style defense. Then we also have all the other route combos for them to worry about as well.
