Quick: when you think of a short-but-powerfully built running back, which names immediately come to mind? On the plus side, there's Ray Rice of course, along with Ray Graham and Joe Morris if you go back a little. Of course, there was also the last "next Ray Rice" in De'Antwan Williams, who many still insist had all the physical tools to succeed. On paper, Ayres is cut from a similar mode. Think about it like this. Rutgers has a slasher in Jawan Jamison, a workhorse in Savon Huggins, and a sparkplug in Desmon Peoples. If roster balance is the key, you'd think next year they'd go for a bruising back that can run between the tackles, no? Then again, it seemed like for a while in the late aughts, Rutgers just kept signing scatback after scatback.
