Draw plays are scheme dependent…

They were a staple of standard pro style offenses that feature a drop back QB. They worked because DL would rush hard upfield on the pass action. But we’re a different style offense. Our passing game is largely play action based, and our QB is a run threat. We don’t do much straight drop back that doesn’t include some sort of eye candy run fake. Plus with the run threat at QB, the DL is less likely to rush pell mell upfield to allow it to run past the DL.
