1st Team All-Conference USA 2012.
Impressions - was 2nd in the entire country in *pass breakups with 18*. 33 total tackles. 6 TFL.1 FR (for a TD)

Career...
Finished his final 2 years in College with 35 passes defended, putting him at 10 in NCAA history. He is a gifted DB at defending the pass. He had an insane, 5 blocked kicks as a Senior at Rice making him a Special Teams nightmare for punters and kickers.

Despite his uncanny ability to defend the pass, he's not a great man cover corner, however he has incredible recovery speed, a nose for the ball and excels at zone coverage.

Gaines is a solid 4th-7th round pick and may sneak into the 3rd round if there is a run on CB's. Here's hoping to the Titans picking him later in the Draft! I'll leave you with a youtube video of his insane 18 pass break-ups from the 2012 season, he's like a damn spider monkey on some of them?!
