It is a fast and easy install that has to be repped a bunch for it to work as it should. As the oline coach I could not care less if the backs are around. To me, wedge progression should be an edd with the oline in group time. Just like pulls and blocking.
I used to spend a lot of time teaching wedge going step by step through the progression. Stopped doing that a few years ago.
I start by fitting them in a good wedge formation. Then from the already fitted wedge I have bird dog one step at time pushing me down field. Then have them push me full speed. Then I back up and have them start their normal three point stances alignment on the ball. I have the apex man fire out two steps and freeze while every one else fits behind him. Then I have them explode into the wedge and up field as fast as possible. Takes about 5 minutes with 13-14 year olds. Would take more time with younger guys.
Then I have them work on fit and explosion about 2 minutes per practice each day during offense group time.
