The QB- usually receives the snap either throws ball or hands off to a running back

the RB or running back- main job is to run the ball they can catch and block if needed

WR- catches passes from QB

TE or Tight end lines up with the lineman the TE can either block a defensive player or go out for a pass

Lineman- there are 3 offensive lineman positions you need 2 guards who are usually faster lineman 2 tackles who are bigger and 1 center who snaps the ball to the QB lineman block defensive players and keep them away from the QB or RB

Now on defense there is

Defensive lineman- there job is usually to get to the opposing teams QB or RB

Linebackers or LB- can guard opposing WR,RB,TE and or can go after the QB

Safteys and corners can guard WR,RB,TE safters and corners are smaller and faster than LB
