Here is an overview of not only the formations you’re in but the actual roles that each defensive player as. Believe it or not every defensive player has a different roll, but most people don’t realize this. For instance your sweeper, who is the last line of defense is not supposed to take high risks, but on the other hand your stopper has that ability. Why is that? Because your stopper isn’t actually the last line of defense even though he should act like it. He has the ability to slide tackle more and take risks because he’s got the support of 3 other defenders behind him in case he makes a mistake.
