How can I assess setters?

Assessing Setters - Step Two

After you've determined who has good hands, you'll need to assess quickness and agility. You can do this by having your setter begin in Right Back and making a quick move to Center Front to set.

Toss the ball to CF, have the setter move from RB to CF quickly and set the ball outside, where another player catches it. Run the assessment drill with front sets, and then back sets and record the results.

This will give you clues as to hustle, desire, quickness and agility, as well as accuracy in your potential quarterback/setter.
