Ayers is an ascending defender who has great size and the ability to be a quarterback terror. He's extremely quick off the line and uses his hands very well. He has a powerful lower body and great leg drive. He attacks mostly on the outside and has the ability to bring his momentum inside. He has an explosive nature, but has to develop better technique to compensate for his lack of straight-line speed.

|Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis||Ayers' value shot up after a great week at the Senior Bowl and many believe he should have even been selected in the top-10. Ayers should be able to transition to a 3-4 scheme and has shown the ability to turn his hips and get into coverage.|
