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.
