The Miami Dolphins have signed running back Mike Gillislee, according to various media reports. The signing of the team's fifth round draft choice brings the total draft pick signings to five for Miami, leaving four still unsigned.

The Dolphins picked Gillislee with the 164th pick last month, the first of two choices in the fifth round. He was also one of three players selected by Miami from the University of Florida. He rushed for 1,152 yards, with 10 touchdowns as a senior last season.

Gillislee joins cornerback Don Jones, kicker Caleb Sturgis, tight end Dion Sims, and linebacker Jelani Jenkins as signed draft picks for the Dolphins. Miami still has to sign defensive end Dion Jordan (3rd overall), cornerback Jamar Taylor (54th), offensive lineman Dallas Thomas (77th), and cornerback Will Davis (93rd).
