The fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft is near its end, and the Miami Dolphins made another pair of selections. The Dolphins selected former Florida Gators running back Mike Gillislee and former Gators kicker Caleb Sturgis with their third and fourth picks on Saturday.
Gillislee is the second offensive player selected by the Dolphins on Saturday, joining former Michigan State tight end Dion Sims, who the Dolphins drafted in the fourth round. The former Gators running back is a solid between-the-tackles runner, but isn't likely to find success bouncing runs outside in the NFL.
Miami's selection of Sturgis will create competition during training camp for Dolphins kicker Dan Carpenter. Carpenter converted 22-of-27 field goals in 2012.
Chicago and Green Bay focused on the trenches, selecting an offensive and defensive lineman, respectively, while Detroit also focused on special teams.
164. Miami Dolphins: Florida RB Mike Gillislee, 5'11, 208 pounds
166. Miami Dolphins: Florida K Caleb Sturgis, 5'9, 188 pounds
