Hook Around Drill


The quarterback and receiver line up with a tackle dummy placed a step inside of the receiver and eight yards downfield.


The purpose of the Hook Around drill is to teach wide receivers how to hook around a defender who is hanging around in the zone of their route.

It also helps build chemistry between the quarterback and receiver as they get a feel for how far each player tends to hook around a defender when encountering this situation.

Drill Description

The quarterback begins the drill by simulating a snap and beginning his drop back. The receiver runs a ten yard hook route with the presence of the tackle dummy/defender in mind.

The route should take him beyond and around the tackle dummy before hooking up beyond the dummy and to the inside.

The quarterback will deliver the ball before the receiver has completely wrapped around the dummy and the ball will be there for the receiver to catch once he has crossed around and hooked into position.
