Actually, the defense does have the option of declining a false start penalty. However, this is almost never done because a false start is a dead ball foul, so the play is blown dead before the snap whenever a false start is called. This means that there’s no play after a false start.
It is now a foul to intentionally use the lower leg or foot to obstruct a runner below the knees.

It is usually illegal, but in the National Football League it is legal to clip above the knee in close-line play. In most leagues, the penalty is 15 yards, and if committed by the defense, an automatic first down. It is prohibited because it has the potential to cause injury.
Article 1: Refusal of Penalties. Unless expressly prohibited, the penalty for any foul may be declined by the offended team, and play proceeds as though no foul had been committed. The yardage distance for any penalty may be declined, even though the penalty is accepted.
In the NFL, encroachment occurs when, before the snap, a defensive player illegally crosses the line of scrimmage and makes contact with an opponent or has a clear path to the quarterback. Play is immediately stopped, just as it is with a false start. (This violation would be an offside penalty in the NCAA.)
Offsides in football are when the player lines up over the line of scrimmage before the ball is snapped, neutral zone infraction is when the player moves over the neutral zone before the ball is snapped, and encroachment is when a defensive player touches an offensive player before the ball is snapped.Jul 27, 2021
An offside penalty occurs when a defensive player crosses the line of scrimmage prior to the snap of the football by the offense. Like a false start penalty, an offside penalty is a five-yard penalty. Unlike a false start, however, when an offside is called the play does not immediately become dead.Mar 17, 2017
