Quarteback Training: How To Do Three Step Drops
by: Andrew Berkey

The three-step drops for quarterbacks are for quick hitting pass plays. These plays are usually high percentage plays that are commonly called timing routes. Using a quick three-step drop; quarterbacks deliver the ball quickly in what is also called a hit and throw technique. The Pass patterns are short and usually the receiver is open only for a instance or two. The quarterback must take his drop quickly and efficiently, delivering the ball on the final step of his three-step drop.

***3-Step Drop****

A. Your first step is a large step with your lead foot. The lead foot being the same side foot as your throwing arm.

B. Your second step is a crossover step with the foot opposite your passing arm.

C. Your final and third step should place you around 5 yards deep, away from the linemen blocking.

The third step is your plant step, as you land on the plant foot, most of your weight should be on your plant foot. Your body should leaning some what forward towards your target. Now you are ready to throw the pass.

As you drop back, you drop back bring the ball up with both hands protecting that ball, get your arm cocked and ready to deliver the pass. At the same time your eyes should be forward, looking over the field reading the defense and looking for your open target.

Practice this drill around 10 times daily and making sure avoid any forward steps. The success of the three-step drop is quickness followed with the decisive action of getting the pass off.
