For instance, against Florida State, the NBA 2K18 MT Demon Deacons dropped the free safety into the box to make sure Dalvin Cook didn’t find easy running room: Elko’s system is mindful of the threat from RPOs of the sort that Long is bringing to South Bend. To that end, the rover will force the run by working outside of the slot receiver’s block, rather than trying to go under and giving that player a free release to run a route.
This puts a lot on the rover to be Cheap NBA 2K18 MT physical, hence Elko’s preference for big, physical players in that spot. It also puts pressure on the Mike linebacker to be able to cover ground laterally.Here’s a great snapshot of how that looks when things are working properly (although it’s the Will linebacker forcing the run, rather than the rover, in this instance):
The weak-side linebacker puts the Clemson slot receiver on the ground and forces the RB to cut upfield early, straight into narrow space that is quickly filled by a fast scraping middle linebacker. Wake Forest has dictated the terms.Elko’s Wake outside linebackers were laterally quick and effective playing blocks in space, while middle linebacker Marquel Lee was always up for running sideline to sideline.
He led the team with 105 tackles, 20 of which took place behind the line of scrimmage and 7.5 of which were sacks. He was an excellent player for Elko.Against Clemson, Wake Forest often leveraged the free safety by dropping him down to buynba2k play man coverage. That meant the Deacs could bring a blitzer: Deshaun Watson made throws that led to explosive Tiger gains on multiple occasions with a free-running inside blitzer in his face and decent coverage outside, often to Mike Williams.
