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

06/13/17 - RB Jay Ajayi has been one of the most surprising players on the field during OTAs (organized team activities) and the start of mini-camp, and it has nothing to do with his physical improvement. Ajayi has opened eyes with his mental improvement, which is, to put it mildly, far ahead of a year ago. "That would probably be beyond an understatement," coach Adam Gase said. "It's slowed down for him a lot from where we were last year at this time compared to where we are right now. The questions that he brings up to us are very detailed. They're really beyond next-level questions. They're almost kind of quarterback-ish questions for a running back.
