RB Mike Gillislee, Florida

Dolphins, 5th round. Fla.: Good height but slightly below-average bulk for the position. Average hand size.

Positives: Very solid pass blocker. Average speed, burst, and vision. Has quick feet.

Negatives: Below-average upper-body strength. Built more like a WR than a RB. A little upright and is knocked down easily. Seems a little hesitant to press the line. Inconsistent hands. Below-average balance. Not much power. Suspect ball security and holds ball too low through the line. Below-average lateral quickness in Combine measures. Though he has quick feet, he doesn’t seem to be willing to change direction.

Projection: I don’t see him as an improvement over any of the team’s current RBs backing up Lamar Miller, but he’s no worse, either. If he makes the team, I don’t expect him to succeed consistently.
