A Nickel Cornerback is the 3rd String Corner and the Nickel Formation and is used to cover Slot recievers. -----
The nickel back is the fifth defensive back in the secondary. He usually plays on downs where the defensive believes the offense is going to pass the ball.

A Nickleback is a defensive position in football who is not in on all plays. It is a cornerback position who is considered the fifth defensive back on the line. This position only enters the game when a nickel defense is required.
