Jay Meets The Press
It’s been a busy week for former BSU Running Back Jay Ajayi. He completed his first mini-camp with the Miami Dolphins. Ajayi is still very confident and tells Dolphins Insiders that he believes he’s the best running back in this year’s draft. He says that the draft has motivated him and he’s happy to be a Dolphin.
He recalls how he ran angry at Boise State with ‘a chip on his shoulder’ in response to all the critics that doubted him through the years. “That was my mentality and I feel I would be doing myself an injustice if I didn’t strive to be the best.”
Ajayi reveals that he had several conversations with several teams including Miami during the draft process. “When the draft happened I dropped, I needed someone to take a chance and whoever did that ends up being that is gonna be the team that ends up with me fully motivated and making a difference.”
The Dolphins Offense is similar to that of the Broncos according to the Jay Train. “It’s very similar to what we ran at Boise State. I’m putting the plays in with what we ran at Boise which has become very easy for me to learn about this offense. I’m excited to catch the ball out of the backfield.”
Ajayi describes himself as a ‘jack of all trades’ running back. He looks forward to continuing his work to make the team.
