Draft Scout Snapshot: A closer look at the Dolphins' seven picks: Round 5/149 - Jay Ajayi, RB, 6-0, 221, Boise State...This was an interesting pick because the Dolphins needed a power running back. The problem is many teams stayed away from Ajayi because medical reports said one knee is almost bone-on-bone. Regardless, Miami might have a steal with this one. If Ajayi can stay healthy he could push Lamar Miller for the starting job. - The Sports Xchange

08/21/16 - RB Jay Ajayi had six carries for 19 yards against Dallas and didn't do much to show he could be the No. 1 running back. Ajayi, a hard-nosed runner, still must show most elusiveness and an understanding of pass protection.
08/08/16 - RB Jay Ajayi was listed above veteran Arian Foster atop the Dolphins' first official depth chart, which was released Monday. Ajayi, 23, is working his way back from a knee injury. He rushed for 187 yards and one touchdown in nine games during his rookie season.
08/04/16 - RB Jay Ajayi, who missed the start of last season with a rib injury, is currently sidelined with a bone bruise to his left knee. He remains somewhat of a mystery to coach Adam Gase and his staff.
"As we head through the preseason and once we get in the regular season, we'll have a better idea of when Jay's in there, here's what we're going to lean on," Gase said. "We're going to do what he does best, and we're still trying to figure that out."
08/02/16 - RB Jay Ajayi (knee), expected to battle Arian Foster for the starting job, is day-to-day after he sustained a bone bruise to his left knee Sunday. Ajayi fell to the fifth round in the 2015 draft amid reports that his right knee had no cartilage, which would likely mean a short career. Ajayi hasn't worn a brace on his right knee since joining the Dolphins and didn't have any issues last season. He started the season on IR/Designated to Return because of a rib injury and finished with 49 carries for 187 yards and one TD.

11/09/15 - RB Jay Ajayi, the fifth-round pick from Boise State, made his debut at Buffalo and rushed for 41 yards on five carries.
