Miami Dolphins Draft Results: Day 3 Gator Raid

New, comments

Sorry. It had to be done. The Miami Dolphins used three picks during the third day of the NFL Draft to select former Florida Gators. Here's a look at all three.

The Miami Dolphins used three picks in four selections during the 2013 NFL Draft to select players from the University of Florida. The run on Gators started with the 104th overall selection of linebacker Jelani Jenkins in the fourth round, then the Dolphins added running back Mike Gillislee with the 164th pick and kicker Caleb Sturgis with the 166th selection.

Turning back to the Pro Football Weekly 2013 Draft Preview, here's a look at all three Gators heading to South Florida.

Jelani Jenkins

Ht: 6' 1/2"
Wt: 243 pounds
Rank: 11th Outside Linebacker

Summary: Undersized, smart, athletic, run-around linebacker who played outside and inside at Florida, but his best chance in the pros will be as a "Will," and he could increase his value by proving useful in nickel and special teams.

Mike Gillislee

Ht: 5' 11-1/8"
Wt: 208 pounds
Rank: 14th Running Back

Summary: Does not have any elite, distinguishable traits but is very consistent across the board in every area and has the tools to become a very dependable backup and situational contributor. Chunk runner best suited for a zone-ground game. Could prove to be a better pro than college player.

Caleb Sturgis

Ht: 5' 9-7/8"
Wt: 188 pounds
Rank: 1st Kicker

Summary: Experienced, dependable, three-step kicker whose strong leg and consistent accuracy give him the look of a longtime pro.
