Good. We need competition and the desire to win. This spot is up for grabs.

 Mike Gillislee, RB, Florida Height: 5-11. Weight: 207. Arm: 30 3/4. Hand: 8 3/4. 40 Time: 4.55. Projected Round (2013): 3-5

 4/23/13: Gillislee performed well at the Combine. He had a quality 40 time and held his own in the field drills. Gillislee had a superb senior season for the Gators. He averaged 4.7 yards per carry while amassing 1,1152 yards and 10 touchdowns. Gillislee played hurt, yet helped push Florida to a tough road win against Texas A&M. He had impressive games against Tennessee, Bowling Green and LSU, too. Gillislee closed out the regular season by destroying Florida State to the tune of 140 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries.

 Gillislee has speed and deceptive power. He is very impressive as a blocker in blitz protection as well. Gillislee really helped his draft stock in 2012 and followed it up with a good performance at the Senior Bowl. He ripped off some long runs in Mobile. 

8/16/12: Gillislee hasn't played much as he had Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey ahead of him on the depth chart, but both of those backs are gone and he figures to be the lead back for Florida in 2012. When Gillislee has played, he has demonstrated some real burst and running ability. Gillislee has averaged 6.3 yards per carry in his career, totalling 920 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns. Like the previous Gators backs, he is very fast.

I'm A Gilislee fan too. Kind of Crazy that they picked up probably 3 out of 4 of my favorite players from Florida this year! The other being Elam.

He is not a guy that will blow you away with his combine numbers. He is quicker than he is fast, and he looks faster on the field cause he runs north south when he sees an opening pretty quickly. He has solid field vision and is a smart player. He also excels in pass blocking, and can line up in the slot occasionally. Unlike Bush he tends to run the play the way it was designed unless it breaks down. Even if it's a stretch play or zone run, he makes his read and gets up field in a hurry. I think he will be a solid one two punch along with Miller.

So i watched a lot of highlights on the kid and I took some time to listen to his relatively short finsider interview and he comes accross as a great kid. Will Muschamp called him the great team guy he's ever coached. When you watch him run, he hit the hole quick and hard. Also the kid and a very, very good blocker (he will put a few guys on their arse throughout the season). My opinion....he gets significant playing time splitting carries with Miller providing the Dolphins a very good one two punch in the backfield.

and he grew up a Dolphin fan!

Its become painfully obvious that we will feature all purpose backs, no one trick ponies.

Good

Not just that, but he sounds like just what we need for the red zone. A strong back with good vision who hits holes hard... could be an important player for us in ensuring we get 7 rather than 3.

I am excited we signed this kid, I think Miller and him will make a great 1-2 punch.

He may....I get the feeling Thomas gets cut during camp, but as long as he continues to return kicks the way he does I'm fine with him being in that role...

His running style reminds me a lot of Arian Foster.
