Positions get their names by where they are at on the field. Walter Camp invented many of them, including "quarterback." Others, including "halfback" and "fullback," were borrowed from soccer and rugby.

No there is not a diagram of offensive football positions. There are just the names of the offensive positions!

There are no positions in either baseball or football with the same names for that position...i. e., there is no shortstop, catcher, etc. in football, nor is there a center, tackle, quarterback, etc. in baseball.
