The 11 Most Effective Open Field Tackling Drills: X&O Labs’ research shows that 32 percent of open field tackles are missed. It’s the highest missed tackle rate among all types of potential tackles and X&O Labs found the deficiencies fall into three main problem areas: defenders come to balance too early on the ball carrier, defenders lose leverage as force players and defenders overrun cutback angles. In this week’s troubleshooting series, X&O Labs combed through the annals of their database to find the eleven most effective drills in eliminating these problem areas. It’s a culmination of how various coaches are teaching their defenders to close space and make tackles in the open field in one-on-one situations. These drills range from the NFL through the high school level and can be implemented in your program this afternoon to solve the open field tackle predicament. See X&O Labs’ Open Field Tackling Drills Here.
