I didn't know what we had with Drake until he got the opportunity to start. He has grown tremendously since his rookie season.

Barry Jackson wrote:
Former Dolphins running back Troy Stradford, the analyst on WQAM-560’s postgame Dolphins shows last season, said if he had to choose between Drake and Ajayi, he would choose Drake.

“Drake has a little more home run ability, make you miss ability,” he said. “And there’s less wear and tear on him because of his running style. Jay punishes people but takes a little more punishment. Drake, longterm, is someone who will be around a lot longer.

“And I’m a big matchup guy. When Drake is in the game for the Dolphins, they can dictate to the defense more [than they could with Ajayi]. It’s going to be a linebacker most of the time [in pass coverage against Drake]. If they split him out, that creates advantages for [Dolphins] receivers. He’s a mismatch nightmare for a defensive coordinator.”

And Stradford makes this good point about Ajayi’s attitude: “Seems like Ajayi wanted all the work in Miami but in Philadelphia he can’t demand that, so he fits into what they want. He could have done that here. But he’s going to the Super Bowl, so I’m sure he’s happy.”

I like Drake. Just wish we hadnt given away Ajayi.
He is running like a beast though. I expect him to have a good super bowl.

The question isn't whether or not we're better off with Drake than with Ajayi. The question is whether or not we would have been better off with both.

I hope we draft a RB that will work out for us in rounds 5-7 this year.

We've wanted a RB who can move the chains in the 4th quarter and get that first down/TD in short yardage situations. Ajayi was that back. Unfortunately he wanted ALL the carries and did not want to share them with Drake. Something is wrong with the water in England. I should know as I lived there for 2 years. You all know that I am not right.

:haha

Drake’s big play ability and how much of a mismatch he can be vs. 3-4 LB’s is what puts him above ajayi for me
