The rusher position could bring some flexibility and speed onto the field

Rusher would be something new to NFL fans as it is a distinct position that is different from the NFL. There is a rusher position that is allowed to peruse the quarterback after starting his rush seven yards behind the line of scrimmage. Having someone that can fly to the quarterback is needed, but having someone with size and potential to cover sideline to sideline might be a necessity.

Fred Warner stands out as someone that is big and applies pressure to the quarterback quickly, He has speed and is the most reliable middle linebacker in the game of football right now. Another good quality for Warner is his youth and he will still be on top of his game come the Olympics. He would provide a lot of good qualities as a rusher.

A new wrinkle in this team if they decide to go offensive heavy could be D.K. Metcalf. He is a big guy with a lot of speed to boot. He might be a perfect option for the rusher position if the coaches wanted to go in a unique approach to filling this spot. Metcalf is a physical freak who has speed for days and has the size that could intimidate the quarterback.

Sometimes the obvious choice is the best choice and that could be Micah Parsons. He is rumored to be working on a super team as you read this article. He would be a great option for a rusher spot. He is fast and big and can get up field in a hurry. Parsons could be a big piece for Team USA's defense if they decide to use him in this spot.
