Plyometrics and speed lifts are a good idea, but your power and speed will only improve as much as your strength does.
Basically, you have 3 ways of producing muscle tension:
Dynamic effort (submaximal resistance as fast as possible), repetition method (bodybuilding method) and maximal effort method (pure strength).
For strength: Squats, deadlifts and good mornings. What's a good weight to reach for? 400lbs squat and 450lbs deadlift if you're not a high level player. 600lbs squat if you are.
Good repetition exercises: Glute ham raises (essential), reverse hypers, gymnastic type mouvements for abs, weighted sit ups on back raise machine (weight BEHIND the head), good mornings, side bends, back raises.
Speed: sprints, long jumps, box jumps, box squats. Feet drills are a good idea.
You will become more explosive and faster doing this.
