Cowboys Draft Rumors: Dallas Wants To Take Boise State RB Jay Ajayi In Second Round

The Dallas Cowboys are trying to replace All-Pro running back DeMarco Murray, and they've targeted Boise State running back Jay Ajayi as the guys they want, according to Rant Sports.

The report states that the Cowboys aren't likely to make a trade for Adrian Peterson as they plan to draft Ajayi in the second round. Dallas has the 60th overall pick in the second round, and the article cites a source that states the Cowboys won't be afraid to trade up in order to get their man.

Dallas likes Ajayi's speed, strength, and deceptive elusiveness, as well as his ability to be a factor in the passing game (both blocking and receiving).

If they manage to land him, he would split carries with free agent signing Darren McFadden.
