I am told that pros train specifically for the first step towards the ball to be big and explosive.

And no, just having the intent to be positioned properly wrt the ball is not enough. There are efficient and inefficient ways. Go to any place where high-level players are actually being produced - and see how many specific footwork drills they do.
