Dec 29, 2013; Arlington, TX, USA; Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray (29) runs with the ball against the Philadelphia Eagles at AT

5. DeMarco Murray

Murray gave the Cowboys their first 1,000 yard rusher since Julius Jones in 2006 and seemingly answered whether or not the Cowboys have a reliable running back.  He did miss a couple of games due to an injury, but it was only two instead of the six the previous season.  Murray’s versatility and attitude were both on display this year.  He had six games where he posted five or more receptions and his nine touchdowns were three more than he had combined in his first two seasons, proving he can be the short yardage back this team needs.

DeMarco also responded to adversity rather well as rumors surfaced during the time of his absence that the Cowboys may start to look in a different direction at his position.  Prior to that, Murray only had two games where he eclipsed 85 yards rushing.  Upon his return, he put up five such games including back to back 130+ yard games and became a leader by example for this team to look towards in the future.
