  3. What is a 4-2-5 Defense?

  4. 2 Back = 4-4 Alignment

  5. What is a 4-2-5 Defense?

  6. 1 Back = 4-3 Alignment

  7. Why Play the 4-2-5? • Nickel Defense = Fast & Aggressive • Cross between a 4-4 and a 4-3 • Easy adjustment to Formations / Personnel • Gap Controlled Defense with easy defined run fits. • Good Blitz Angles • Good angles to set the edge! • Allows us to run split coverage defense. • Allows us to get to a 4-4, 4-3, 3-3, & 3-4 with same personnel.

  8. What Personnel is Needed? • If “Speed WINS” then Design your defense for Speed = • Aggressive Corners = Safeties • Stiff Safeties = LB’s • Oversized LB’s = Ends • Oversized Ends = D Tackles • Biggest D-Lineman = Nose (your anchor)
