Defensive Back

In the game of football, defensive backs are the key to shutting down high powered offensive. At the NFL level, DBs match up against the multiple wide-receiver sets, loaded with athletes usually taller and stronger than they are. That's why defensive backs drills work on footwork, and why DBs put a premium on the 40-Yard Dash. You have to be both quick and fast to play football as a defensive back, and STACK's has the inside info to get you there.
