Best Answer

Every player's position is important. The center hikes the ball to the QB. No center, no hiking the ball. He's also the closest one to the QB, so if he doesn't block well, the QB would get sacked every time. The Center is responsible for calling the blocking assignments of the offensive line and spotting the key defensive players, usually the middle linebacker and, if they are playing up close to the line of scrimmage, the safeties.
