Let's compare the vehicles using different criteria:

Able to transport full-sized pressurized cargo using CBM port:
- Cygnus
- Dragon
- Jupiter
- Dream Chaser (implied, needs to be verified)

Able to return cargo to Earth (i.e. downmass capable):
- Dragon
- Dream Chaser
- CST-100

Both the Dragon and the Dream Chaser would be able to satisfy all of NASA's needs for full-sized cargo and downmass, but that doesn't mean that is the only requirement NASA is looking at. But that gives hope to SNC for the prospects of the Dream Chaser.
