In football there are four major offensive threats: a quarterback, wide receiver, tight end and running back. They are the fuel that makes an NFL offense run, and it’s important to field a star caliber player at all four positions.
It’s vital to have a quarterback who can lead a team, demonstrate discipline, read a defense and post numbers that ultimately lead to wins. Having a wide receiver who can get off a jam, run solid routes, catch the ball away from his body and make plays after the catch is also a necessity. A tight end who possesses strength, speed and soft hands is a luxury, because when a receiver struggles to get open, the tight end provides a sense of security for the quarterback over the middle. And finally, a running back is the bulldozer or jet ski who can either pound the ball or run around a defense and make it tough for the opposition.
