A Nose guard or nose tackle is a defensive lineman who lines up between the defensive ends and over the center of the offensive line.

If you mean the position of the defensive players i can help you out. defensive:right guard, right tackle, left guard, left tackle, noseguard, left linebacker, right linebacker, middle linebacker, safety, and 2 defensive ends. I hope that answers your question.

The Defensive Line can be set up in more than one way but the positions somewhat remain the same. Defensive End/Defensive Tackle/Nose Guard The only difference is would be the way they line up.
