Over the Years, the Defensive Line Position has Evolved into several different positions. In a 3-4 or a 5-2 Defense, The Defensive Nose Guard or Nose Tackle, or sometimes Called The Middle Guard plays Directly over the Offensive Center and in a 5-2 or 3-4 Defense, The Defensive Tackles play Directly over the Offense Tackles.

In a Typical 3-4 Defense, The Nose Tackles are “Big-Wide Bodies who can hold the Point of Attack and Force Two Offensive Linemen to Double Team him with the Offensive Guard and Center.  They are also usually the Heaviest Players on the Roster, weighing in the 320 to 350 Pound Range. Height is Important, but Typical Nose Tackles are 6-3, 6-2, or 6-1-Inches Tall or Below.

In a Typical 4-3 Defense, both Defensive Ends are at a Down Position in a 5 Technique. The Strong-Side Defensive End or Strong Side End is Lined-Up on The Tight End side.

This Defensive End is Typically the Bigger, Stronger, and more Physically Gifted End of the two Defensive Ends, as he may be seeing blocks from either the Tight End, Right Offensive Tackle or Guard, and Fullback or a combination of two of those players.

The “Weak Side Defensive End” or “Rush End” is The Blind-Side Pass-Rusher against a Right-Handed Passing Quarterback and he usually is a Speedy, Athletic, and One of the Best Players on the Football Team. This Super Defensive End has Recently been given a New name of EDGE Rush End.

In Separating These Defensive Players, They are Divided into Four Different Position Categories, Including Defensive Tackles, Nose Guards or Tackles, Strong Defensive Ends, and EDGE Rush Ends.

About maxemfingerrecruiting

My mission and goal is to search for that hidden high school football talent that has not been found yet. I then evaluate him and try to help him to get some publicity. In 2003, 2004, 2005. and 2006, I hosted my Annual 7on7 National Championship. My goal was to get great athletes to one area where I could evaluate them and then help them with college coaches. The only drawback was that college coaches wanted to see the hidden gems in a game-type highlight film and so the college coaches suggested to me that I host a real All-American Bowl Game so that they could view these talented players in a highlight film, playing against other talented players. It's noted that the NCAA doesn't allow the college coaches to attend All-American Games or practices and so the Game Film is a great tool for the college coaches. In 2005, I hosted my 1st Annual All-American Bowl Game. In nine games in nine years, my wife and I have helped 549 HS football players to get a scholarship that came to our first Bowl Game practice without a single scholarship offer. This also does not count over 1,000 players who we have helped that did not play in our game, including over 100 players in the 2010 Recruiting Season. My Super Elite Top Gun Camp idealogy, is of course, to get as many Top Football Players to a Top Gun Camp so that all of my coaches and I can evaluate them, rate them, rank them, and promote them. There will always be "Diamonds in the Rough" to be found. My First Annual Max Emfinger's Super Elite Top Gun Camp was in July of 2010. The Camp was amazing and loaded with unknown and known talent. Many of them were invited to play in our 2011 All-American Bowl Game Classic. In 2007, in my 3rd Annual All-American Bowl Game, a player by the name of Kareem Jackson came to our first Monday practice, without a single scholarship offer. Jackson decided to come out early and he became a #1 Draft Choice in the 2010 NFL Draft for the Houston Texans.
