Designing RPO Systems:X&O Labs has just released a brand-new special report that fills the void on how to effectively design and implement RPOs in your offensive system. They consulted only with programs that base at least 50 percent of offensive snaps on post-snap options. This study delves completely into how these coaches are devising their RPO schemes, which are predicated on box count, front structure and coverage structures. X&O Labs sat in the spring meeting rooms with these coaches as they broke down the run game from each of their most productive formations and personnel groupings to marry up the complementary pass tags they use to attack those coverages, including ones they will be using next fall.
