The Miami Dolphins have had a Gator draft day.

Miami selected tailback Mike Gillislee in the fifth round with the 164th overall pick. In the fourth round, the Dolphins picked junior outside linebacker Jelani Jenkins.




Then only two picks after Gillislee was taken, the Dolphins scooped up UF place-kicker in the fifth round.

In his only year as a starting tailback, Gillislee rushed for 1,152 yards and 11 touchdowns this past season.

The Gators have had seven players drafted so far.
