5. DeMarco Murray

The Dallas Cowboys drafted DeMarco Murray with their third round pick in 2011 and they did not look back. He struggled to stay healthy through his tenure in Dallas, but was one of only two running backs since Emmitt Smith retired to actually run for over 1,000 yards. He finished his four seasons in Dallas with 4,536 yards and is the new Cowboys’ single-season record holder with 1,845 yards in 2014. Funny enough for Cowboys fans, Murray struggled mightily in his first season outside of Dallas with the Eagles. That has to feel good for America’s Team’s fan base. Though a playoff win would probably feel a bit better, huh? (Sorry, I had to)
