Last month, the agent for Boise State running back Jay Ajayi rebutted a report that his client’s combine medical re-check of his knee went poorly by pointing out that Ajayi didn’t go to Indianapolis for a follow-up medical exam.
Whether there were concerns about a knee injury from several years ago or other reasons to blame, Ajayi’s stay in the draft pool lasted longer than many people anticipated. He went undrafted through the first four rounds before the Dolphins ended his wait with the 149th pick.
Assuming there aren’t any medical issues that get in the way, Miami’s not a bad landing spot despite the wait. Lamar Miller is established as the top back, but there’s no clear-cut No. 2 and Ajayi could get a look in that role at some point this offseason.
