If you like blocking you can be the tackle or a guard. If you just want to sack the quarterback, be the defence end. You can also be a linebacker - they tackle anyone with the ball or cover the wide receiver or tightend. ---- If you are a good tackler, play midfield or wing-back. If you can defend very well and have a good distance kick, play centre-back. If you have good reflexes, try goalkeeper.
