Nickel 335

INTRODUCTION:

It’s time to add a more DB heavy look to your arsenal with blitzing, run defense and coverage. Last year 335 was one of the top 2 formations in the game, and we feel it is right up there again this year. Please dive into each video to learn the full understanding on how to properly defend using this formation.

Below you will find each play with its own section laid out within tabs. When possible we will also go over an advanced strategy that may require more adjustments, a complete understanding of the formation, or quicker fingers to complete the play. Make sure to learn the entire body of content to ensure that your defense is starting to lockdown.

BENEFITS OF 335:

  • Run defense + coverage advantage
  • Every coverage shell
  • Pressure or passive from the same look

WEAKNESSES OF 335

  • Weak vs 2 TE sets at times
  • Cannot put safeties at LB
  • Disguising heat is tricky
As of the latest patch – do not use contains to blitz as the pass rusher will not attack the quarterback

In this group of tabs we will go over base plays that can include passive blitzing. Passive blitzing is where we set something up that is either inconsistent or easy to block. We do this because it allows to be in a variety of coverages while not sacrificing the ability to get some heat.

Simply click the corresponding tab to learn a particular setup. There are no written setups on defense. We do this to encourage watching the video to understand the play to the fullest and not just blindly set up a play.
