In the NFL what occurs when there is a defensive pass interference?

Automatic First DownThere shall be no interference with a forward pass thrown from behind the line, is one rule about interference. Defensive pass interference is called when a defensive player interferes with a receiver's attempt to catch the ball. If the defender makes contact with the receiver, it is pass interference, unless the contact is incidental, or done in order to make a play on the ball. For example the defensive player can knock the ball down, even if he has to contact the receiver to do it. But he cannot push the receiver, trip him, grab his arm, pull his shirt, etc. Typically referees will call pass interference if the defensive player makes contact with the receiver but is not looking back at the ball.When defensive pass interference is called, the offense receives an automatic first down, and the ball is placed where the interference occurred. If the interference occurs in the end zone, the ball is placed on the one yard line. Pass interference cannot be challenged once called.

Can a defensive back hit a receiver before the ball is thrown?

No. If the defensive back hits a receiver before the ball is thrown it is Pass Interference (if the ball was already in the air) or Defensive Holding (if the ball hasn't been thrown yet). That said, the defensive back has as much right to the ball as the receiver, so if he is making a play on the ball the contact may be legal.
