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

11/11/15 - RB Jay Ajayi, a rookie fifth-round pick from Boise State, was impressive in his debut last week, rushing for 41 yards on five carries. Interim coach Dan Campbell said Ajayi probably earned a role in the offense. "For the carries he got, I think he made the most of them," Campbell said.
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. Ajayi spent the previous seven games on the injured reserve/designated to return list due to a preseason rib injury. He figures to fit into Miami's running game the rest of the season.
11/08/15 - RB Jay Ajayi made his season debut after missing the first seven games with a rib injury. The fifth-round pick out of Boise State flashed his potential with a 23-yard run in the third quarter. Overall, he gained 41 yards on five carries.
11/08/15 - RB Jay Ajayi, a rookie, made his season debut Sunday after missing the first seven games with a rib injury.
11/07/15 - RB Jay Ajayi was activated from reserve/injured, designated for return by the Dolphins Saturday (Nov. 7).
11/04/15 - RB Jay Ajayi (ribs) must come off the injured reserve/eligible to return list next week or go to season-long injured reserve, but there's question as to whether he would be on the 46-man active gameday roster. Miami already has RBs Lamar Miller, Damien Williams and Jonas Gray on the gameday roster.
There's probably no use for another RB, especially one who doesn't excel on special teams.
10/22/15 - RB Jay Ajayi, currently on reserve/injured, designated for return, had his 21-day practice period being Wednesday (Oct. 21) with the Dolphins.
09/12/15 - RB Jay Ajayi (ribs) was placed on reserve/injured, designated for return by the Dolphins Monday (Sept. 7).
09/01/15 - RB Jay Ajayi, the fifth-round pick from Boise State, had seven carries for 25 yards and two receptions for four yards Saturday against Atlanta. It was Ajayi's first appearance of the preseason due to a hamstring injury and although he looked OK he'll have a tough time playing from scrimmage early in the season because he missed so much time.
08/20/15 - RB Jay Ajayi, the fifth-round pick from Boise State, will be among the youngsters that gets a long look in Saturday's game at Carolina. Ajayi was sidelined with a hamstring injury for much of the last week and has been passed in the backup running back battle by LaMichael James and Damien Williams. It's likely Ajayi makes the 53-man roster. After all, he's a fifth-round pick. But it's not a guarantee. Ajayi doesn't play special teams, unlike James and Williams. Even RB Mike Gillislee plays special teams, which gives all of them an edge over Ajayi. That makes the Carolina game essential for Ajayi.
