    So what if the quarterback (say Lamar Jackson) is on a designed quarterback sweep and dives for the pylon?

    He’d have to report as a eligible RB.

    According to the article he gets called down of when he started to dive. So if he leaps from the 3 or 4 yd line he will probably be called down at the 2 or 3 yd line even if he manages to reach the pylon without being touched.

    This seems like a really foolish rule.

    Oh man, I didn't even think about UR.

    How is he going to tell if a quarterback is elite or not?

    Receivers won't be allowed to dive any more! DT will automatically become the best WR in the league!

    I don’t have a problem with the new rules. The dive will be interesting, but the helmet rule is way overblown. It’s very similar to the college rule.

    Explain a 4th and goal and the QB goes header to the goaline.
