Dolphins GM Dennins Hickey said “we were very excited” that running back Jay Ajayi “was still there in the fifth round. He brings the ability to play all three downs. He’s a power back but yet still has elusiveness.”
Ajayi dropped in the draft because of concerns his knee, but he’s a first or second round talent and an all-around back that will complement Lamar Miller well in Miami. It’s a good spot for Ajayi, and the physical player from Boise State will be considered a prime sleeper candidate this year as a tandem back if his knee holds up. Miller is still an attractive RB2, but it's clear that the Dolphins haven't fully committed to him.

Lamar Miller - Week 17 vs. New York Jets
The Dolphins finally gave Lamar Miller the ball and he ended up having his best game of the season. I've pointed out multiple times how Miller never had a game with more than 20 touches, but last week he finally surpassed that milestone. He finished with 24 touches for 150 yards and a touchdown.
Expect Miller's numbers to drop a bit this week. He'll face a Jets defense that's been tough, especially lately, against running backs. The Jets have allowed 80 rushing yards or fewer to backs in 11 games this season, including the last four.
Miller should be used as a RB2 this week.
