A defensive tackle (DT) is typically the largest and strongest of the defensive players in American football. The defensive tackle typically lines up opposite one of the offensive guards.

These roles may include merely holding the point of attack by refusing to be moved or penetrating a certain gap between offensive linemen to break up a play in the opponent's backfield. If a defensive tackle reads a pass play, his primary responsibility is to pursue the quarterback, or simply knock the pass down at the line if it's within arm's reach. Other responsibilities of the defensive tackle may be to pursue the screen pass or drop into coverage in a zone blitz scheme. In a tradi

  • Il defensive tackle (DT) è uno dei ruoli che costituiscono la defensive line nelle squadre di football americano. Generalmente sono i difensori più forti e robusti e tra i loro compiti hanno quello di fermare il running back, bloccare il quarterback (sack) e di coprire in caso di lancio la zona adiacente. Sul lato esterno ha il defensive end. Nella difesa 3-4 il defensive tackle è uno solo ed è comunemente chiamato nose tackle, si schiera davanti al center avversario ed ha il compito di reagire immediatamente al primo movimento della palla (snap) che dà inizio all'azione di gioco.

  • Een defensive tackle (DT) is een positie in American en Canadian football. Defensive tackles zijn de grootste en sterkste spelers van het verdedigende team en staan opgesteld tegenover de offensive guards. De taken hangen af van de strategie.

  • Defensive tackle (DT) ou "Defensor Maior", é um jogador de futebol americano que se posta na defesa (linha defensiva) no centro da mesma. A linha defensiva é tipicamente composta por 3 ou 4 jogadores; os no meio da linha são chamado "Defensive tackle". Todos pressionam a linha de ataque, impedindo corridas e tentando derrubar o quarterback. Os "Defensive Tackles" são os maiores jogadores da defesa. Às vezes a defesa postará apenas um DT no meio linha defensiva na formação 3-4, esse jogador é chamado Nose tackle (NT). Ele terá a função de atacar os bloqueadores e também de fazer tackles. (pt)

Other responsibilities of the defensive tackle may be to pursue the screen pass or drop into coverage in a zone blitz scheme. In a traditional 4–3 defensive set, there is no nose tackle. Instead there is a left and right defensive tackle. Some teams especially in the NFL do have a nose tackle in this scheme, but most of them do not. (en)
