We havenít showed too many 2-4-5 blitz schemes. So this week I want to show a version of the 2-4-5 Ray Smoke that is really easy to set up to bring inside pressure from the LILB.
The 2-4-5 Ray Smoke has the NB blitzing on the left side (as you look at the screen).
What we like to do is move him to the right side. Notice he is lined up about five yards from the line of scrimmage. Be sure to watch the video breakdown, because we show other areas on the field where he can be moved without effecting the blitz.
Notice his blitz angle shoots outside of the right tackle despite us moving from the left side to the right side.
With four defenders blitzing on the right side of the offensive line, the LILB is often left unblocked.
The reason for this is because the C blocks the RILB, the RG blocks the SDT, and the RT looks to block the NB.
Even if the FB is left in to block, the normally canít get over to block the LILB.
In the screen shot above, you can see the FB trying to get back to block the LILB, Ö
Ö but he is a few steps too late and the result is a sack.
A very simple set up that requires little effort and thatís what we all are looking for when it comes to blitz schemes. The only thing you may need to do is make sure the LILB doesnít move. If he does, move him back so he lines up just outside of the SDT.
