A tight end lines up within the two yard zone at the end of the offensive line. The tight end normally is comparable in size to an offensive lineman but is an eligible pass receiver. In contrast, a wide receiver can be a split end or a wing back (depending on if he lines down on the line of scrimmage or not. A wide receiver is normally tall and skinny in comparison to an offensive lineman and is normally very fast.
The wide receiver is a pass catching specialist in football. There are the one of the quickest and most agile players in the game. They line up wide from the center (thats why there are called Wide receivers) There are 2 (sometimes 3) types of receivers in football, an X and a Z. Also if the tight-end lines up as a receiver he becomes a Y. The X is referred to as a split end, while the Z is the flanker, and of course the tight-end is the Y. The tight-end and split-end both line up on opposite sides on the line of scrimmage, while the Z is behind the line on the same side as the tight-end.
A covered Tight End is a Tight End with a Wide Receiver outside of him on the line of scrimmage. If you want a Tight End eligible for a pass, he must not be covered up by another player since the only eligible receivers are those with the correct number (not 50-79) who are either in the back field or the last men on the line of scrimmage. Therefore having a player outside of the Tight End on the line of scrimmage is "covering" him up. A covered Tight End is legal for run and pass as long as the covered Tight End is not going out for a pass.
Yes, he usually lines up behind the tight end diagonally. He is a cross between a wide receiver and running back.
A player who catches passes. In an offensive formation, he usually lines up outside the tight end, off the line of scrimmage. Also Known As: receiver.
If the split end is on the line, no. If this wideout is actually a flanker - not on the line, then that would put the TE on the end making him eligible. A tight end is called an end because he is on the end of the line. Eligible receivers are all players in the backfield (not on the line of scrimmage), plus the the two linemen that are on each end of the line. The other requirement for eligibles is that they be numbered 1-49 or 80-99. A common foul is when a wide out lines up on the end of the line on the same side as the tight end, then a tight end is downfield (beyond the expanded 2 yard neutral zone) goes downfield while a forward pass travels beyond the line of scrimmage. In this case, the wide out erred in lining up wrong, or the tight end should have known he was covered and thus ineligible.
left end is the receiver that lines up left end of the offensive line
The Tight End is a receiver as well as a blocker, a very versital position requiring skills in multiple areas.
A tight end lines up on the offensive line and can either block for the quarterback, block for a running back, or go out for a pass. The TE (Tight End) can also be used in motion and as a decoy. The TE is generally is a tall, strong, and semi fast guy. Usually works in the middle of the field. He also works in the holes of the defense. The wide receiver lines up either on the line or slightly off the line. He can either go out for a pass, block for a run, run a reverse, or throw a pass. The WR (Wide Receiver) can also be used in motion and as a decoy. The WR lines up wide of the line. The WR is usually tall, very fast, and athletic. The WR generally works on the sidelines. He runs all over the field.
Typically there is one tight end used in an offensive formation. There are variations to formations that call for two tight ends. In certain formations a third tight end can be used, but will not be an official tight end for that formation as they will be lined up behind the line of scrimmage. A typical NFL roster holds three or four tight ends.
An uncovered tight end is a tight end who lines up at the line of scrimmage without having a defensive player lining up directly in front of them. In addition, after the ball is snapped, it could mean a tight end who is not picked up by a defensive player and is able to run their route with out a defensive player near them on the field of play. When you see this happen it is typically called a "blown coverage".
The 'X' receiver is a common short hand for the Split End as opposed to the Flanker who is the 'Y'. the X receiver lines up onn the left generally, usually the #2 receiver, the one on the right is generally the Z
The tight end (TE) is an player who lines up at the end of the offensive line. He is right up against the line (hence the term "tight"), as opposed to being split out from it.Being a part of the line, tight ends do a lot of blocking. Thus, tight ends tend to be somewhat large, strong players. However, being on the end of the line makes them eligible receivers, so most tight ends are surprisingly athletic for their size.
Other than quarterback, Tight End is the toughest position on the offense to play. The TE must be a versatile player. He must be a good run blocker, since the side of the line on which he lines up is considered the "strong" side, where most rushing plays are designed to go. He must also be a good pass blocker, because the TE, although eligible to receive passes, frequently stays back to assist the offensive line in protecting the QB. And as an eligible receiver, he must have good agility and hands, since he often goes down field or runs pass patterns into the flats to catch passes. For many teams, the TE is the go-to receiver in the red zone (inside the 20-yard line), when the chance to score a touchdown is greatest. A tight end is a pass receiver who usually positions himself next to one of the offensive tackles on the line of scrimmage. Where as the other two receivers, the split end and flanker, are swift and agile, a tight end is large and strong. The tight end will help the offensive line in run blocking in the center of the field. Tight ends generally run short pass routes in the middle of the field or to the flanks.
It depends on how old you are. If you were going into the NFL and are around 22, it would probably be best to play Wide Receiver or one of the Safety positions.If you have good hands then Wide Receiver and if not safety would be better. If you are going into college and are around 18, you might be able to put on some weight and play Tight End or Linebacker. It also depends on what type of frame you have. If you are close to your max size I would stick with the first two positions if not then bulk up and try the last two positions.
Wide receiver. If you bulk up and grow to 6' 2" 6'3" you could play QB.
The term screen comes from the play's design which has several blockers in front of the pass receiver at the time of the catch, creating a 'screen' in front of the receiver. The two general types of screen pass are those that are thrown to a running back and to a wide receiver. A screen pass to a wide receiver is a quick developing play. The quarterback will drop back, usually three steps, and throw the ball laterally or a yard or two forward, to the wide receiver who is behind the line of scrimmage. While this is going on a couple of offensive lineman run out to the side and get in front of the receiver. There might also be another wide receiver or tight end lined up on that side so there would be three blockers in front of the receiver when he catches the ball and begins running upfield. A screen pass to a running back is a slow developing play. The quarterback will drop back normally as if he is looking to throw the ball downfield. The running back will stay in the backfield as if he is going to block for the quarterback. Then the running back will move into an area, behind the line of scrimmage, to catch a pass while two or three of the offensive lineman and maybe the tight end, who have been blocking defensive lineman, will peel off and get in front of him. The quarterback will throw him the ball and he will have several blockers ahead of him. This type of screen pass can also be thrown to a tight end. The tight end will line up on the line of scrimmage next to an offensive tackle and start the play as a blocker. He will then peel off the block and the quarterback will get him the ball while some of the offensive lineman also peel off their blocks and get into position to block for the receiver.
The tight end position has always been a part of football, it was simply called 'end' instead of 'tight end'. In the early days of football, offenses used mainly running plays. Rules stated, and still state today, that there had to be seven players positioned on the line of scrimmage at the time of the snap. Since most plays were runs, both ends would line up next to the tackles to help with blocking. As the passing game became popular teams would keep one of the ends in close, usually to block, and move one of the ends away from the offensive line to become a pass receiver. Folks gave the end who stayed close to the tackle the name 'tight end' because he played close, or tight, to the offensive line and called the other end 'split end' because he played away, or split himself, from the offensive line.
A lot of cargoes can be shipped in bulk--meaning "not individually packaged." There are two kinds of bulk cargoes: those that are going to be sold to the end user in bulk, like gasoline which starts out in a bulk tank at the refinery and ends up in a bulk tank on someone's car, and bulk cargoes that are going to be packaged for retail sale, like milk which is sold in jugs and bottles.
Tight end. The tight end lines up on the end of the offensive line. Tight ends usually do a lot of blocking and sometimes go out for passes.I play tight end its easy and fun. The offense has to have exactly 7 players lined up on the line of scrimmage. (The other 4 players must be behind the line.) The two players on the end of the line can go out for passes. (The inside linemen can't.) Split ends are wide receivers who are on the line of scrimmage but stand out on the side of the field, split away from the others. Tight ends stay in tight, next to the inside linemen. Usually there is only one tight end on the field, and his side of the line is called the "strong side." The other side is called the "weak side." If the offense needs to run the ball, they might put a second tight end on the line to provide extra blocking power.
Most tight ends are around 6'3-6'6 weighing between 225 on the light side and up to 260 on the heavier side. Speed is crucial though. For example I'm a 6'5 tight end at 245lbs and I run a 4.75
I'm not familiar with the term WE. There is a split end (SE) and the more generic term wide receiver (WR), so perhaps WE is simply a mistaken combination of the two.As for a split end, that is a wide receiver who lines up on the line of scrimmage (as opposed to a flanker, who lines up behind the line).
The tight end is ussally a big guy. Depending on th ecoach a tight end may block acting like an extra offensive lineman or for other coaches he may act like a reciver and go on routes and catch. A good coach will mix it up and block sometimes and go out for passes other times.

A flanker is a player on offense ... a receiver that lines up behind the line of scrimmage and on the other side of the ball that the split end is lined up. Flanker is a term that is not used much anymore since receivers, in the current game of complex offensive formations, line up in so many different positions. A receiver that lines up in a flanker position on one play might line up in a split end position on the next play and then maybe in the backfield on the next play. The terms flanker and split end have been replaced with the generic term 'wide receiver'.
