2. Nick Chubb, Running Back
Turning from Jamie Gillan and his Scotland team, we now turn our attention to a potential lineup for Team USA. As we have seen with the basketball team, it’s hard to build the right team. Gone are the days of the 1992 Dream Team led by Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson.
That unit was insane and just throttled the competition. Now, we see that other countries are catching up when it comes to talent and the United States is having to figure out how to build an elite roster, that can also play together.
We’re looking for the same thing here, which is why we have Nick Chubb. Right now, Chubb is already one of the top running backs in the NFL but what’s more important is his selfless nature. Chubb isn’t a guy who would hog the spotlight and he wouldn’t have an issue sharing the backfield with other incredible stars.
Remember, Chubb entered the NFL in 2018 out of Georgia and was actually the second player from his own team chosen at the position. Sony Michel went to the New England Patriots in the first round and Chubb was a second-round pick.
He’s also shared the backfield with Kareem Hunt, who is a former NFL rushing leader. Chubb is a guy who can get hot on limited touches but can also carry the load. That makes him a great fit for our Olympic team.
