Josh Allen

Another easy selection would be Josh Allen, who is one of the most athletic quarterbacks in the NFL. While his rushing ability may not translate as well to a speed game like flag football, since he is more of a power runner, the threat is still there to make him a weapon on the ground.

The other reason that Allen is a great fit is the remarkable arm strength that he has. This applies to the deep throws but also the ability to throw with speed in tight windows. The ability of Allen to get the ball out quickly and on target on slants and crossing routes would help put wide receivers in a position to run after the catch and pick up extra yards.

Josh Allen has also shown over the years that he can be a threat as a receiver with a receiving touchdown against the Houston Texans in the 2019 Wild Card game, the touchdown pass from McKenzie in 2020 as well as a two-point conversion reception from Dawson Knox last year.

While some quarterbacks like Kyler Murray may have more elusiveness at the quarterback position, Josh Allen has the better arm and is enough of a threat to run the ball that he would be a better fit for the Olympic team.
