Tackle is a action not a PERSON!just to let u know When referring to a person on the football team, the "tackle" is a lineman. There are offensive and defensive tackles, though only the defensive tackles are permitted to tackle anyone. The name dates back to the time when the same player had to play both offense and defense. The offensive line looks like this: End - Tackle - Guard - Center - Guard - Tackle - End The tackle's primary job is to block, either to create holes for the running backs or to protect the quarterback from the blitzing defenders. Tackles are big but generally are quicker than the guards, as they are responsible for outside protection and therefore need to respond quickly to any moves made by the defensive ends. On defense, the defensive tackles play on the inside of the defensive line. Defensive tackles are generally bigger, to clog up the line and prevent the running backs from getting through.
it's between the two defensive tackles
Middle Linebackers are usually positioned behind defensive tackles and/or in-between the defensive linemen and the defensive backs (Cornerback, Strong Safety, Weak Safety.}Middle Linebacker
Offensive tackles are responsible for blocking defensive players on all offensive plays (running & passing). Defensive tackles are responsible for clogging the middle of the line (between the hash marks) so the offense will have difficulty running up the middle and so the quarterback won't be able to step into his pass attempts or escape up the middle if he can't throw the ball.
