Many incredible players throughout the NFL’s longstanding history have donned the star on their helmets, and several of those players have been honored by being given the NFL’s highest honor: being enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. In fact, 29 players who played for the Dallas Cowboys for at least one year have been inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame.

To receive this honor, players must be elite athletes who dominate in their position for a substantial amount of time. While many members of the current roster have a ways to go, are there any stars on this team who could be headed for Canton in the future?

In this article, we will look at some players who have pretty good Hall of Fame chances. For each player, I will give a personal estimated chance they have of making the Hall based on their current status, years played, positions, etc. Let’s take a look!

5 current Dallas Cowboys players who have the best chance to make the Hall of Fame

Percentage chance to make the Hall of Fame: 5%

I know it is incredibly early to mention anything remotely resembling Hall of Fame talk for a guy entering just his second year in the NFL, but Parsons may be a completely different breed. The young star is fresh off a rookie campaign in which he notched 13 sacks, won NFL Rookie of the Year honors, finished second in Defensive Player of the Year voting, was voted 1st team All-Pro, and made the Pro Bowl.

The Penn State product is eyeing an even bigger season this year, and any improvement from 2021 likely means winning Defensive Player of the Year. While winning just one of those will not be anywhere near enough to be considered a Hall-of-Famer, if he continues his rookie dominance for at least a few years, he could certainly begin to be in consideration. For now, though, let us chalk this up as way too early to tell and enjoy the ride watching what could be one of the most talented players in football for years to come.

Parsons doesn’t strike many as a one-and-done guy. His first year alone had him compared to some of the greatest defenders in the NFL. If he keeps going on this trajectory, he will be destined for greatness.
