Abilities

Shutdown Shutdown defenders have the talent to erase receivers from the game. When they enter the zone, their coverage is tighter and interceptions are more frequent on contested catches.
Force incompletions Don't allow yards

Unfakeable Defenders with this ability are rarely faked out by ballcarrier moves (and cannot be faked out when user-controlled).

Zoned Out Defenders with this ability force more catch knockouts and react quicker in zone coverage.
