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

11/16/16 - RB Jay Ajayi has rushed for 725 yards, and his 5.7 yards per carry average leads the NFL. If Ajayi remains at this pace he'll be No. 2 in franchise history in yards per carry, right behind the 6.4 Mercury Morris averaged in the 1973 season.
11/14/16 - RB Jay Ajayi didn't rush for 100 yards against San Diego, but he finished with 79 on 19 carries, a strong 4.2 yards per carry. Ajayi had a 40-yard carry to set up running back Damien Williams' 2-yard touchdown run and a 21-yard carry to set up Williams' 18-yard TD reception.

10/24/16 - RB Jay Ajayi has 54 carries in his last two games, amassing 418 yards in the process. Ajayi entered the season with 49 carries in his rookie season of 2015.
10/23/16 - RB Jay Ajayi penned an incredible chapter Sunday, becoming just the fourth player in NFL history to rush for more than 200 yards in consecutive games, leading Miami to a 28-25 upset win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday afternoon at Hard Rock Stadium.
Ajayi, who was left off the active roster for the season opener after he pouted when Miami signed Arian Foster to be the starting running back, ran 29 times for 214 yards (7.4 average) and one touchdown.
The previous week, he ran for 204 yards and two touchdowns against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Before that game, Ajayi, a former fifth-round pick from Boise State, had never even rushed for 100 yards in an NFL game. His previous high was 48 yards as a rookie.
And yet Ajayi, despite that thin resume, joined O.J. Simpson (1973 and 1976), Earl Campbell (1980) and Ricky Williams (2002) as the only NFL players to have consecutive 200-yard games.
"I've always had confidence in my ability," Ajayi said. "But back-to-back 200-yard games in the NFL is an amazing and crazy thing to do."
