Parker not good enough to start, maybe on the extended roster. Long higher in the pecking order than Parker but still not a starter. Maybe CB4 or so.

Based of what I've seen from USMNT and heat maps of the Nats best matches this lineup is the best US can have.. And the players can interchange if need be to create better on pitch duels that favor US or if some gets pulled out of position the closest teammate is a natural to cover that ground

I like playing three at the back, but you have to have wingbacks to provide that width. Thankfully, I think filling out a 3-5-2 is easier than a 4-2-3-1 or 4-4-2, because the flank opposite Yedlin could be occupied by Saief or even Adams in a pinch. I'm sure there are others I'm not even thinking of that would thrive in a role that requires a little less of a balancing act.
