X’s & O’s: Counter Read RPO – Inside Fade/Slant

This RPO puts the Free Safety and Sam Linebacker in a bind. They are seeing Bubble by the Fullback and stock posture by Z and Y receivers, so they are going to want to jump the Bubble. To take advantage of that, you will have two options based off the Free Safety.

    Also, FS not a run fit defender here, so how does it fit into RPO?
