We heard from one of the premiere wide receivers in Larry Fitzgerald yesterday on how to play the wide receiver position in a seven-part series, breaking down route running, footwork, hand work, everything. With a tip of the cap to SoCalHawkFan, I wanted to add a few more videos from the same series today featuring another premiere receiver in the NFL, Desean Jackson. Personally, I like these videos because of the nuances and subtle techniques they describe -- the checklists they have for each skill, on each play. I just like hearing from players at the top of their game on how they succeed at the highest level. Take it away, Desean.
