I am a big fan of the cradle, knee hug, and walking pullback quad mobilizations in the warm-up period.  I think they are a great way to get people moving better.  Unfortunately, many athletes can butcher these exercises considerably.  Some hyperextend, some lack enough mobility to get the knee up and have to compensate by flexing at the lumbar spine, and some do both.  A new trick I picked up recently is to have the athlete descend into a quarter squat to get down to the knee to avoid rounding the back.  I think it is a great way to get things going especially in someone who lacks range of motion or who is exceptionally tall.  Give it a try!
