The only guy closer to the football than the Center, is the Odd Front Nose Guard. In your 33 Stack Defense or 3-4 Defense, the play of this guy is critical.
You can play him in two different ways. Either use a big, strong 2-Gap Nose Guard, or get your guy moving using slant calls.
I mentioned an article from JoeDanielFootball.com on 3 ways to slant, you can check that article out here.
