I went back on YouTube to take took a look at several of the games FAU played this past year and K Briles offense is very much a RUN FIRST offense with the QB as a run threat on a majority of their plays.
I know many have said Kyle Allen was the ideal type QB in this offense because of his size and ability to throw the ball, however when you look at what FAU did in the clips below you’ll see they used their QB as a run threat a lot and he was pretty successful with no extraordinary running skills, similar to past Baylor QBs. FAU didn’t throw the long ball as much as you would think either.
I really think a dual threat QB like King or Smith will be extremely successful in this offense. The offensive line and running backs are the groups that are going to really need to step up!
Check out the clips below that show only the FAU offensive plays thru three games:
