Matt Bowen from NFP says Frank is one of the league's 10 best dual purpose backs:
Frank Gore, 49ers (240-1,036-8TD/43 rec-373-2TD)
"Gore doesn’t get the respect he deserves, but he can play with any of these guys when it comes to producing in the run and pass game. I know from personal experience that Gore can turn the corner and run past anyone, and although he missed some time in ’08 because of injury, he still rushed for more than 1,000 yards and averaged almost nine yards (8.7) a reception. He’s a force."
