Already viewed as one of the top running backs entering the 2015 NFL draft, Ajayi shone during the drills.

He featured in the top 5 in four events, including finishing second in the 60-yard shuttle drill, with a time of 11.1 seconds, and third in the 20-yard shuttle drill, doing so in 4.1 seconds.

Ajayi’s other strong events were the vertical leap and broad jump, where he came fifth in both with distances of 39 inches and 121 inches respectively.

In the combine’s most watched event, the 40-yard dash, Ajayi finished with the ninth best time of 4.57 seconds, that effort coming on his second attempt.

The record for the event was set by former Tennessee Titans and New York Jets running back Chris Johnson in 2008, who set a blistering 4.24 effort.

Analysts were quick to praise Ajayi for his ability to be a three-down back, while adding that his size (6’0” and 221 pounds) will make him an ideal weapon between the tackles and in space.

Both NFL analyst Mike Mayock and CBS Sports project that Ajayi will be selected in the second round of the draft, with potential landing spots including the Indianapolis Colts, the Dallas Cowboys and the Baltimore Ravens.

Londoner Ajayi will next get the chance to impress NFL scouts at Boise State’s pro day on March 18.

The NFL draft will take place from April 30 to May 2.
