The Hardest/easiest Positions To Play In The Nfl

Recommended Posts

HARDEST:

To me its quarterback and center.

No need to explain quarterback but isnt it hard to be responsible for snapping the ball then protecting the quarterback? I cant imagine how much of a nightmare it is to protect them during a blitz. You obviously need to be a quick to think. The center is also responsible for communicating with the rest of the offensive line at times.

EASIEST:

Probably runningback and defensive tackle.

How easy is it for a rookie to succeed as a runningback? All it really depends on is how good the offensive line clears the way. The biggest challenge at times is blocking for the quarterback. Defensive tackle is all about strength and pushing your way to the quarterback.

It really depends on what your criteria is. Mentally, I'd have to believe that you're pretty close to being spot on. Physically, the reverse might actually be true. RBs consistently put more wear on their body than just about any other position although, for the money, NT is one of the most physically demanding and brutal positions to play in all of sports. Combining the physical and mental aspects in your grading just makes things even murkier.

Hardest position on offense mentally and physically : QB, C, OG (purely physically will be RB which has shortest longevity in the league but their position is one of the easiest to play mentally to offset it, have the vision to be patient and run through the lanes provided by your O-line, the early year success of Arian Foster, CJ2K all prove it)

Hardest position on defense mentally and physically: DT, Safety, DE. To me CBs are easier to transition because safeties have more assignments to understand than CBs.

Defensive tackle is all about strength and pushing your way to the quarterback.

No, it is not. You play against O-linemen much stronger than in college and unless you are the kind like Ndamokung Suh, your hand technique and strength is not as developed. You have to also understand stunts if necessary, and positioning yourself against the O-linemen as the game goes on. A LOT OF DTs take a long long time to succeed in this league and that is why.

There are no easy positions because each has technique required that not everyone can do properly. Even field goal kickers have a tough time because no one respects their clean uniform and the fabric softener smell.....

From what I've heard and read, the hardest positions are QB, OL, CB, WR, and DL. The easiest ones are RB, TE, LB and S. Though, take "easiest" with a grain of salt; these are some of the best athletes in the world

I'd say the toughest has to be QB or LB.

The easiest would have to be punter or FB, but every position is tough.

90% of time easiest is Kicker, but in the other 10 it could be the hardest. But physically it is prolly always the easiest.

most stressful position in the nfl is long snapper. you cannot make a mistake. if you do, bad things happen.

The less people know your name as a long snapper in the NFL, the better. You only hear their names when they >>> up....unless they are Justin Snow, in which case they belong in the HOF

    • Luck and Love. Make it happen!
    • Ballard actually cares about JB and wouldn't send him to Seattle so their offensive line could get him killed.
    • saw the opposite about Murray. he's a lock. doubt sweat drops much at all DJ is still a mild ranging QB   ps... this thread won't stop a hundred more JIT threads... mess
    • Thought perhaps we might turn this thread into a place where all the final tidbits and rumors could end up in one thread...   Here's what I've read/heard....   1.   Montez Sweat has been told he's slipping and has elected not to be at the draft.   He'll watch at home with family.    Tonight, I saw a story saying a number of teams are now too afraid of his heart condition and have removed him from their board.   But, as of now,  not all teams.   He might still go in R1,  but exactly when, no one seems to know.    Could he reach pick 26?     Maybe.    The next question is what are our doctors saying about him?   2.   Saw a story tonight saying Arizona has cooled on Kyler Murray.    Not exactly clear why.    One story was interest in Murray was to see if it would help drum up interest in ticket sales.    It hasn't.    Cards said to be eyeing Quinnen Williams.     (Note:  Selecting a #1 pick based on possible tix sales is a bad, BAD way to do business.    3.   Daniel Jones appears to be a hot QB candidate.   A growing number of teams seem to like him.   They think they can win with his brains and toughness and how he's been taught on the pro level.   Please feel free to add what you like...   facts,  tidbits,  rumors,  etc.       
    • Ballard reportedly offered him multiple pre-prepared contracts/terms. He chose. Doesn't sound like there was any negotiation at all. Sound like a GM who had a ton of cap space, set his limits, and went in prepared.    I don't blame DF for betting on himself given the nature of the contract. See below.   See above. Reports I saw, and chatter on this board is that DF was presented with multiple preprepared options. Didn't take long. Doubt there was any negotiation.    Key thing I found interesting..... If you watched Funchess on NFL.com post signature, he did an interview and cooking show. It was fun. DF didn't talk about the contract terms at all. What he did talk about was:   He said he has set an 8k budget per month for himself regardless of how rich he gets. Guess how that math works out.    $8,000 x 12months x 50 years = $4.8M That's less than half of his base contract for 2019.  it's 3x the amount he made in his first 4 years, and set himself up for life if he is serious about his budget. He'll get another contract with someone after 2019, but if he didn't, he's still set up for life.   So, did he lie about his budget? If he's being honest and is happy with 8k a month, how much motivation besides a ring does he really have. Is that enough?   not the full vid, but sure you can find it
