RB Mike Gillislee of Florida selected by Miami Dolphins in 5th round of the NFL draft

Running back Mike Gillislee of Florida has been taken by the Miami Dolphins in the fifth round of the NFL draft.

Gillislee rushed for 1,152 yards and 10 touchdowns as a senior last season. He averaged 5.3 yards per carry in his career and totaled 22 touchdowns.

He was the 164th overall selection Saturday.

The 208-pound Gillislee will compete for a roster spot after starter Reggie Bush departed to Detroit via free agency. Lamar Miller is expected to be Miami's starter this year.
