I just picked up a beta team and I am having a problem understanding how to set the depth charts on defense. I am running the 4-3, 5-2, and Nickel. In the 4-3 and 5-2 I have my DBs set up in the positions I want them at, but when the set changes to Nick a lot changes.
In the Nick D my 2 starting Corners remain in the place I set them (CB 1 and CB 2), but all of the sudden my SS switches to CB 3, my FS switches to SS, and my third string safety becomes the FS. Why is this...can any one help me understand this?
I want my two starting CBs to remain the same (which they do), and I want my third string CB to become the #3 corner in the nickel. I do not want my FS and SS to change positons. I am definitely missing something here, and I have yet to figure it out?
Same thing happens with my LBs. In the in the 4-3 they are set where I want them. In the Nick and 5-2 my OLB (LB 1) remains in his starting position, but then my ILB (LB 2) becomes the OLB , and my second OLB (LB 3) is not even in the set. I am feeling really stupid at this point, and it is probably something really simple, but I am at a loss to figure it out so far....any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much in advance!
