The offense is allowed up to ten players on the line of scrimmage, need one to receive the ball from the center. But the offensive is required to have a minimum of seven players on the line of scrimmage. Defensively all eleven can play on the line of scrimmage.

At least seven.
The defense can line up anywhere behind the line. None have to be on the line.
A minimum of 7 players must be on the line of scrimmage. There is no minimum but all 11 can. The 7 player minimum is only for the offense.
I believe it is: 10 yards (end zone) + 7 yards (from line of scrimmage) = 17 yards. to brady sucks;)
Its were the ball is placed before each play. If the ball has traveled the line moves. Also only so many eligible Receivers can be on the line.
Seven, of which two are eligible receivers. All other offensive players must be at least one yard behind the line of scrimmage (the exception being the quarterback) for one second before the ball is snapped.
15 players total is the answer. Here is the breakdown. 7 players from each side must be in position on the line of scrimmage plus the quarterback for a total of 15 players on the field during a play.
Rules require at minimum 7 players to be on the line for any play. If a goal line offense has a RB and FB then the line might have 8 on the line.

20, I believe Only 7 offensive players must be on the line. The defense can line up anywhere.

There are seven (7) officials on an NFL playing field during a game. The officials are (with a very brief synopsis of their position and duties):The Referee: Head of the officiating crew. The ref is responsible for controlling the game, manageing the crew and has the final say so in interpreting the rules of the game. He also announces all penalties. The Referee is usually lined up 10 to 12 yards deep behind the Offense.The Umpire: Responsible for players conduct, actions at the line of scrimmage and the players equipment. Usually the Umpire is lined up 5 yards downfield from the line of scrimmage.Head Linesman: Primary duties include checking for offsides & encroachment at the line of scrimmage and is vital for determining the extent of forward progress on offensive plays. In addition, the Head Linesman is in charge of the Chain Crew. The head Lines man straddles the line of scrimmage.Line Judge: The Line Judge is similar to the Head Linesman in that he helps keep track of potential violations on or around the line of scrimmage. In addition, he is also responsible for keeping time, as he is the back up for the official game clock.Field Judge: The Field judge is responsible for defensive back and wode receiver play. he is stationed 20 yards downfield from the line of scrimmage. He is on the same side of the field as the Line Judge.Side Judge: Like the Feld judge, he is responsible for the play in the defensive backfield. He is stationed 20 yards beyond the line of scrimmage on the same side of the field as the Head Linesman.Back Judge: Set up approximately 25 yards beyond the line of scrimmage, he is responsible for monitoring the play of the Tight End. In addition he monitors the 40 and 25 second clocks.
A field goal can be attempted from anywhere on the field, so the distance from the 40 yard line isn't really relevant to anything. If you're asking how many extra yards the ball must travel relative to the line of scrimmage, you must allow seven yards to snap the ball back to the holder, plus ten yards to reach the back of the end zone (where the uprights are positioned). Therefore, if the line of scrimmage is the 40-yard line, you would have a 57-yard field goal attempt.
Four. Eleven must be on the field, and seven must be on the line of scrimmage. In theory, you could have a quarterback and three running backs.
Yes you can throw as many passes as you want as long as you or the ball has not crossed the line of scrimmage, but once you or the ball has crossed that line, you may not forward lateral the ball to another player, the pass must be a backward lateral.
