Thank you rmancil for giving this clinic a try . .When recruiting for LB's , what attributes do you look for that determines a good Inside linebacker and also for a good Outside linebacker . Same question for Defensive backs , with regards to Corner and Safeties . I currently practice for 3 Def. sets .4-3 , 4-4 , 5-2 . Hope to drop 4-4 for 3-4 in the future if I can get the depth I would need .
For all positions, do NOT look at each position individually. Determine how your entire team will operate first, then choose offensive and defensive schemes to match, then recruit for that.
Example: Grind it out smash mouth, ball control offense. Choose wishbone or ND Box. Go with best OL and RBs you can find. Blocking is a priority for everyone.
Example: Stop the run first, and make your opponent pass: Choose 4-3 or 4-4 as your base, with monster DLs and LBs. Choose DBs that look more like S than CB.
Just examples and certainly more detail could be stated...but the simple point is that one coach's opinion on what makes a good (insert position here) can be way different than another coach's perspective.
