CT and others, what would consider are the best leg exercises for football?
squat, power versions of oly lifts
Nothing beats the Squat in my opinion. In fact, I don’t really think anything even comes close. Some may disagree.
I saved this list from CT a while ago. Actually I think you asked the question at CF’s forum almost exactly a year ago.

What are the best strength and olympic lift exercises for football?

It depends on the needs of an individual, but I’d say:
- Power snatch from hang
- Power snatch from blocks
- Power clean from hang
- Power clean from blocks
- Push jerk
- Push press
- Romanian deadlift
- Sumo deadlift
- Bench press
- Back squat
- Jump squat
Those are in no particular order
