Watch: The Value Of A Fullback (And A Great Run Scheme)

Trey Edmunds Run

It’s great to have a fullback back in the Pittsburgh Steelers’ arsenal. Trey Edmunds’ 45 yard run Sunday, the longest by a Steelers’ running back since DeAngelo Williams four years ago, proved it.

And it proved a fullback doesn’t need to make the critical block to be the critical element of the play. We’re breaking down that run in the video below and how the split flow action got Colts’ linebacker Darius Leonard to bite. That gave Maurkice Pouncey the time and leverage to make the key block to spring Edmunds down the right sideline.

So let me know your thoughts in the comments below. And thanks for watching.
