The hb draw first started to become noticed as a dominant play in the middle of the madden 11 season.  A lot of people still do not ever call draw plays even though you can get huge pickups. Unless the defense calls a heavy blitz, you should be able to find a running lane.  This play will set up big passes because the defense will have to honor the hb draw.
