Paris Gaines, FB - Fresno State

Gaines by the numbers

Ht: 6\'0\"
Wt: 228
40-time: 4.67
Bench press: 360



Positives: Well-built with a thick chest and arms…North-South runner who bangs the holes with authority…Protects the ball well, showing that quick twitch to change direction instantly…Excellent receiver coming out of the backfield…Has natural hands, making the tough grabs outside the framework and shows good leg drive to gain yardage after the catch…Very adept at picking up the blitz, consistently delivering the low cut blocks… Patient waiting for blocks to develop.

Negatives: Despite his lateral agility, he is inconsistent turning the corner (appears to lose his feet)…Needs to show more toughness, as he will take himself out of the game with minor injuries…Has had academic issues in the past that need to be reviewed (could be lazy, rather than a lack of intelligence)…Makes poor cuts at times, running directly into the defender rather than trying to elude…Will not face up as a blocker, preferring to cut instead.

CAREER NOTES: A strong north-south runner with good breakaway speed, Paris is a threat to come out of the backfield and catch passes…The key factor in the Bulldogs\' running game, he had a banner senior campaign as the team\'s featured back…Finished his career with 514 carries for 2369 yards (4.6 avg) and fourteen touchdowns…Only Lorenzo Neal (2405, 1990-92), Dean Philpot (2533, 1954-57), Michael Pittman (3017, 1993-97) and Ron Rivers (3473, 1991-93) ran for more yards in a career for the Bulldogs…Added 81 receptions for 892 yards (11.0 avg) and nine scores…His 3405 all-purpose yards rank eighth in school annals.

PERSONAL: Communications major…Son of are Fernando and Vivian Rashad…Born 4/03/78 in Jersey City, New Jersey…Resides in Vista, California.

Thanks for the info. I found some info at NFL.COM under fantasy football. It shows him as a fullback. Hopefully he can be some help.
