A lot of players don't wear pads in their pants, because they believe it will slow them down; whether it be speed, agility, or simply, reaction time. This is why so many players object to the NFL's new rule in the 2013 season, stating that it will become mandatory for players to wear thigh and knee pads. Personally, I agree with the players. In college, I wore Yeh smallest(youth) pads I could find, and during my stint in arena and semi-pro, I NEVER wore them... So it kind of makes sense to me.

It depends a little on the player and position, but there are 10 basic pieces of equipment helmet, shoulder pads, a tailbone pad, 2 hip pads, 2 thigh pads, 2 knee pads, and a cup.
