Draft Scout Jay Ajayi News
07/24/14 - NFL Draft-Eligible prospects from the Mountain West Conference to watch in 2014: 1. RB Jay Ajayi, Boise State, RS Junior...The Boise State program has produced two running backs drafted in the top-40 picks, most recently Doug Martin 31st overall in 2012. And rising redshirt junior Jay Ajayi is hoping to add his name to that list. The top returning rusher in the conference, Ajayi put his name on the NFL radar with 1,425 rushing yards and 18 rushing scores last season, averaging 5.7 yards per carry. He has quick feet and controls his acceleration well with the explosive qualities needed for the next level.
Ajayi has a limber, flexible body type with rubber joints and nimble lateral moves to juke, flashing the balance to makes defenders miss or brush off contact. He plays fast, but sometimes too fast and will run into his own blockers and needs to improve his ability in pass protection. But above all, Ajayi needs to eliminate the fumbles and improve his ball security to be viewed as a viable early round pick. Based on tape study, it wouldn't surprise me if he earns second and third round grades from NFL scouts. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
