When watching film on opponents, I focus on things such as the way they line up in formations from the linemen to receivers, running backs and the quarterback alignment and spacing can give you an idea of what play is being run during your presnap reads. Also learning your opponents too, plays and sets. Learning who their go to guys are and prepping myself mentally for the whole matchup.
