Jayson Ayers

School: South Carolina State
Position: DE
Bio: Two-year starter and all-Conference selection as a senior after totaling 44/8/1. Junior numbers included 25/8.5/3. Brother Robert Ayres was a first round pick out of Tennessee.
Positive: Smooth, athletic defensive lineman who makes plays all over the field. Plays with terrific leverage, balance, and body control. Uses his hands well, collapses down the line to chase the action, and has good speed. Displays ability in pursuit, rarely gets knocked off his feet, and always making positive plays. Effectively reads and diagnoses the action, remains disciplined with assignments and does more than just pin his ears back then rush up the field.
Negative: Easily blocked from the action by a single lineman. Undersized and primarily used out of a three-point stance in college.
Analysis: Ayers has fallen under the radar screen the past two seasons yet is a solid football player with a lot of talent. He lacks classic size/speed numbers but has the ability to be used as a situational pass rusher who lines up in a three-point stance or stands up over tackle. May not pursue a career in football moving forward.
