Defensive back

Defensive back

Defensive back ('DB) (en varios medios latinoamericanos es referido como Back defensivo) es un anglicismo utilizado para una posición defensiva en el fútbol americano y el fútbol canadiense. Los Defensive backs tienen la responsabilidad de prevenir que los wide receivers atrapen el balón en pases. De manera similar a otras posiciones defensivas, pueden buscar un sack.

El termino "defensive back" engloba a jugadores en varias posiciones como los cornerbacks o los safeties. Colectivamente estas posiciones son llamadas defensiva secundaria.

Estos defensas deben mostrar grandes habilidades en cuanto a velocidad y agilidad, además de ser capaces de analizar la formación del ataque antes de que se inicie la jugada para predecir las intenciones del rival.
