These groups work out and run together and are based on the positions the players play. Each group participates in workouts and drills designed specifically for these units and the type of players within them.
The breakdown of the groupings is as follows:
Group A: WR, DB, RB
Group B: LB, FB, QB, DE, TE
Group C: OL, DL
If these groups look familiar to you, you may recognize them as the similar groupings used in the annual Lift For Life event. This approach allows each group to concentrate on specific exercises and measure their results against similar players. "You aren't comparing the results of wideouts to defensive tackles," an observer explained.
These groups can also provide hints as to where a player is expected to see reps during spring practice.
