A "number of teams" have red flagged Boise State RB Jay Ajayi's knee when reviewing medical checks, according to Tony Pauline.



Thee knee injury (which was described as "shredded") occurred during an attempted theft when Ajayi was 18 years old after just moving to the U.S. for football. Beat writer Chadd Cripe once said "The injury on the field was so bad that coaches wondered if he'd recover." Pauline's report is worth keeping in mind during draft weekend, especially if Ajayi stays on the board longer than expected.

Why is an injury that happened when the guy Was 18 news

Durability is a concern.

Boise State running back Jay Ajayi is one of the most talented and productive running backs in the 2015 NFL Draft class. But the long-term durability of his right knee is a “strong” concern, according to several league sources.

Ajayi injured his right knee in October 2011 and has dealt with cartilage issues in that knee over his career. The issue was red-flagged at the NFL Combine re-check in Indianapolis

Ajayi rushed for 3,796 yards over his career in Boise State and could be a very productive runner in the NFL as a rookie. According to league sources, he is ready to play right now, but the question is longevity of the knee and how long will it hold up? Team doctors are unable to pinpoint a timetable with that question.

That kid absorbed more contact and did more with less than any of the guys - calling bs , teams want this kid - hes made to take punishment

If you play football your body is acclimated to the punishment your body absorbs.

Injuries, totally different animal, they catch up with you, sooner or later.

Updating a previous item, the agent for Boise State RB Jay Ajayi says his client did not attend the Combine medical recheck last weekend.

Prospects with medical concerns are annually told to attend the Combine medical recheck. Agent Eric Burkhardt says Ajayi was not told to attend, which suggests NFL teams are comfortable with the condition of his knee despite reports to the contrary. As we originally suspected, the concern over Ajayi's knee appears to have been overblown, and may have been disseminated as a "smokescreen" by clubs hoping Ajayi falls to them in the draft.

So Ajayi was 18 when he "shredded" his knee.

He is now 21(will be 22 in June) and has had a really successful college career since then.

How is his knee really that much of a concern?

My guess is his knee shows signs of cartilage wear and it's a matter of time before it wears down to bone to bone contact. Nobody knows if and when it will be an issue but the doctors probably view it as a real concern.

There are no guarantee's in sports many doctors did not think drew bress would recover from his shoulder injury.

its news for the same reason Antonio Richardson went from a 2nd round prospect to undrafted last year. Just because you played "fine" in college with the injury doesnt mean your knee doesnt have a shelf life if its not 'fine'

Adrian Peterson was hurt every single season of his college career. Buddy has been one of the healthiest backs in the league aside from one year.
