Ourlads' Profile:

2015 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JAY AJAYI: Boise State, 5116 221 4.56. Junior entry and two-year starter from Plano, TX. A complete running back with natural running instincts, capable of carrying an offense. He gets stronger as the game goes on. A high motor athlete who can create yards where they don’t exist. His effort has led to too many fumbles and that reputation will follow him to the NFL. He is a natural playmaker, but the speed of the NFL will not allow him to bounce outside as frequently. His vision and patience are strong points. He is a good pass catcher and route runner but must show increased effort as a blocker in the passing game in order to develop into an every down player in the NFL. Very good contact balance and strong leg drive. Can drag defenders for extra yards. Shifty and powerful; can jump cut for extra yards or run defenders over. Has the speed and instincts to turn the corner and hits the hole quickly. Short area quickness and elusiveness is excellent. Hard to tackle one on one. He is a one-cut runner who does not lose speed or momentum upon his cut. Reads his blocks well, trusts what he sees and consistently works upfield. His vision allows him to set up defenders on the second level. He can breakaway even without elite speed because of his vision and being able to get defenders off balance. His route running is good and he catches the ball well. His eyes turn upfield immediately upon making a catch. A willing blocker with a good grasp of the blocking schemes. Most of his fumbles come as a result of fighting for extra yards. 2014 stats: 1823 yds, 5.3 ypc, 28 TD, 50 rec, 535 yds, 4 TD. OSR:4/ 34. Second/third round. (A-32, H-10, BP-19, SS-4.10).
