1. Damien Harris

Look, you're just not going to find many free agents who've had a clean bill of health since they entered the NFL. Jonathan Taylor, Josh Jacobs, Joe Mixon and Austin Ekeler headline the 2024 class, and all four have stayed relatively healthy in their careers.

That said, each of them will have significant mileage on their tires for their age and will likely command top-of-the-market money.

Assuming the Cowboys have learned from their mistake of paying RBs big money, Harris could fit right into their budget. The former Patriots draft pick has long been underrated and he'll finally have a chance to shine in a high-level offense after he left New England for the rival Bills as a free agent this offseason.

Harris has yet to play a full season so 2023 will determine how much interest he'll gauge on the market and how much teams are willing to pay for his services.

If he gets through the year healthy, though, you're talking about a back who's tallied 4.7 YPC in his career and averaged over 3.0 yards after contact per attempt in his career to go with about 40 forced missed tackles and close to 20 explosive runs per season.

The Cowboys could do a lot worse than Harris is Pollard leaves.
