Let's put it this way: I hope his performance is a bit below average for a CB so the Niners can pick him up late. If he does well at the combine he'll probably go in the 2nd or early 3rd round, and there are a ton of players I want the Niners to draft who have been considered anywhere from late first rounders to 4th rounders:
Stanley Jean-Baptiste (late 3rd???)
Travis Swanson (or was it Travis Samsonite? I forget)
Maybe Cyrus Kouandijo & red shirt him if he drops to the 4th or so due to injury? Depending on how bad it is of course.
...obviously the Niners can't get all of these guys, so I'm hoping Gaines does poorly at the combine so he can be had in like the 5th round. That'd be sweet.
