Athleticism. Depending on the position or play, an NGL player must be able to leap, jump, stretch arms or legs, spin and throw. Athletic skills also include speed, strength and the ability to squat and lift.

Decision-making. Offensive and defensive formations, or changes in them, and the quick pace of action often call for quick, split-second decisions. Quarterbacks may need to audible, or change plays, based on looks by the defense and call plays with diminishing time on the play or game clock.

Discipline. Unfocused or thoughtless actions, such as late hits, taunting, and false starts destroy good field position and momentum. Being disciplined also means sacrificing personal preferences for team goals, listening to coaches and avoiding reckless, criminal or improper conduct both on and off the field.

Endurance. NGL players must exhibit stamina during the games as a whole and, especially for defensive players, during long offensive drives. Players may have their endurance tested especially in hot or humid conditions.
