The split end is another name for a wide receiver. He catches passes and blocks on running plays. The split end is the receiver on the weak side (the side opposite the tight end) of the formation. The number for this position is 80-89, like all tight ends & wide receivers.

What is a flanker and where is he located in football?

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'.
