Eagles running back Jay Ajayi said earlier this offseason that he’s looking forward to returning to a workhorse role after splitting time in the backfield following the trade that took him from Miami to Philadelphia last year.
Ajayi isn’t the only one looking forward to seeing Ajayi in a more prominent role. Running backs coach Duce Staley said he knows Ajayi is excited about “being able to go out there and dominate and being able to be that guy” and that head coach Doug Pederson is excited about it as well.
Staley said it has “been awesome” with Ajayi since his arrival and shared what he’s seen from the back this offseason.
“Just him being focused Colton Sissons Jersey , coming in, knowing he’s the guy, knowing he’s the guy that’s going to step up there and just put everything on his back and ride with him Dmitry Kulikov Jersey ,” Staley said, via the team’s website.
The Eagles still have Corey Clement, Darren Sproles and others in the backfield Christopher Tanev Jersey , but it looks like they will all be vying for time behind Ajayi as the summer unfolds in Philadelphia.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have three picks and may look at adding depth at safety during the final four rounds of the NFL draft.
The Buccaneers have a fourth, fifth and seventh round pick on Saturday.
Tampa Bay addressed needs at running back and corner back with its three second-round choices Friday night, taking USC running back Ronald Jones II Juuse Saros Jersey , and cornerbacks M.J. Stewart from North Carolina and Auburn’s Carlton Davis.
The Buccaneers also picked Humboldt State guard Alex Cappa in the third round.
In addition to having an anemic pass rush, the Bucs finished 32nd in total defense at just over 378 yards per game and also allowed opponents to convert a league-high 48 percent of the time on third down.
“We’ll see how this thing works out,” Bucs head coach Dirk Koetter said. “We’ve got (Saturday) Authentic Benoit Pouliot Jersey , too. There’s still safeties available out there.”
The Buccaneers selected Washington defensive tackle Vita Vea 12th overall during Thursday’s first round.
Tampa Bay hasn’t made the playoffs since 2007 and haven’t won a postseason game since the franchise’s 2002 run to a Super Bowl title.
