Summary

There's some chatter about the Miami Dolphins using Kenyan Drake more this season, and it makes sense. Jay Ajayi was productive over the course of a season, but he wasn't consistent, and if that is the case again this year, head coach Adam Gase may need to mix things up. We don't know how good Drake is just yet, as he has just 42 touches so far, but there is potential. Drake is a bigger back (6'1", 210 lbs.), and was dangerous on passing routes and could make defenders miss as a member of the Alabama Crimson Tide. The team needs to see it on the field though, and nobody has quite yet. And before Drake gets a shot at Jay Ajayi, he has to crawl over Damien Williams. The advantage he has over Williams, though, is Drake looks like an ideal change of pace back. (August 13)

Dolphins | Kenyan Drake injured (Mon Aug 14, 12:05 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (head) suffered an apparent head injury in practice Monday, Aug. 14.

Our View: It's been considered a 'could be' concussion at this point. If that's the case, it would make the second Dolphins RB (Jay Ajayi) to suffer a concussion during training camp this year. Drake is a backup to Ajayi, but he would lead a RBBC if the starter were to go down.
