College: Florida

Experience: Season









Draft 2013

Pick No.164

Selected By: Miami Dolphins

Round: 5

Pick (Overall): 31 (164)

Pick Analysis: Expectations were high for Gillislee when he arrived in Gainesville as a top-10 running back recruit nationally from DeLand, Fla. He didn?t get many carries his true freshman year despite playing in all 13 games (31 for 267 yards, one TD), but did rush for 78 yards on five carries in the team?s win over Cincinnati in the Sugar Bowl. Gillislee scored seven times as a sophomore, but still averaged less than five carries a game (58-325) on the year. He had fewer touchdowns in 2011 but still had a less-than-ideal workload (56-328, two TDs).

Apparently not short on confidence, Gillislee stated at 2012 SEC media days that he had goals of reaching 1,500 yards and scoring 24 touchdowns as a senior. Florida?s offense revolved around Tim Tebow in Gillislee?s first season, and then Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps over the last two. As the team?s lead back in his senior season, he didn't hit his goals, but still managed 1,152 yards on 244 carries, and he finished with 10 rushing touchdowns.
