Before you decide how deep the running back should be aligned in your offense, you have to understand the purpose of depth. It’s all about timing.
Which means your running back depth will be determined by a number of factors.
What offense do you run? How fast does your blocking take to develop? How quick is your running back?
Lots to think about, and that’s good. There’s infinite opportunity to tweak and adjust your running back’s depth and timing steps to get it just right. And you’ll probably need to do different things for different backs.
