Boundary pressure is one of the toughest aspects to playing quarterback for any athlete to handle. You’re at the line of scrimmage, focusing on the defensive front, the alignment of the safeties, and all the thousands of other things that you need to account for, and miss the fact that the cornerback is getting ready to blitz you from the outside.

Back during his draft process Deshaun Watson was critiqued along these lines, and many evaluators were worried about his ability to attack to the sidelines and were concerned about how he responded to boundary pressure packages. It led to this piece from years ago that is worth a look.

That’s why these two plays from Memphis quarterback Brady White in the 2019 AAC Championship game were fascinating to study. They offer clear examples of Brady White handling boundary pressure:

White is an interesting prospect this draft cycle. He might be limited schematically, and projects best to a West Coast offense. He is an older prospect, who will be 25 around the time his rookie season begins. But for teams looking for a developmental prospect on the third day of the draft, and who use such an offense, he might be a perfect fit.
