Making a Football Defensive Back Skills Video During COVID-19

Learn how to make a football defensive back skills video during COVID-19 and what college coaches are looking for at your position/level. Watch our football defensive back expert analyze skills footage and get actionable tips for showcasing the skills coaches want to see in your video.

NCSA Recruiting Coach and former defensive back college athlete James Cooper highlights what football defensive backs need to include in their skills video, including:

• Offering coaches supplementary footage during season delays or canceled camps/combines
• Why recruits should focus on having a proper stance throughout all drills
• Key drills to include, like the Short and Long W, Weave, and Pedal and Full Open (which players also run during the NFL Combine)
• Why the angle of the camera matters—facing you or behind you to show your full body size and how you break
• How many reps to complete (2-3 per drill) and how long your skills video should be (2-4 minutes max)
