What are the Defensive Positions in Football? (with pictures)
Behind the linemen and toward the middle of the field, a defense might have one linebacker, called a middle linebacker, or two linebackers, who would be called inside linebackers. Most linebackers take their position standing up or slightly crouched, as seen in the photo below, but outside linebackers occasionally line up in three-point stances when they are on the line and outside the defensive ends.
