Jay Ajayi

Ajayi is another potential draft pick the Giants could look at in April’s draft. He was a workhorse for Boise State this past season, finishing with 397 touches for 2,358 total yards and 32 touchdowns. That kind of workload shows that he could be a lead back, but the Giants would not need that from him yet.

Ajayi has a nice power speed combination that would entice any NFL team, as he ran a 4.57 40-yard dash at the combine despite weighing 221 pounds. That equaled a 101.3 on ESPN Speed Score, the seventh best in the class. What could also have the Giants intrigued about Ajayi is is ability to catch the ball out of the backfield.

With Boise State, Ajayi caught 50 passes for 535 yards, ranking him fifth and third respectively in the NCAA by running backs. It is hard to find a running back coming right out of college that can play in an NFL passing game, but Ajayi looks like one that potentially could. He has all the tools to succeed in the passing game as a receiver and pass protector at the next level.
