In 51 career games with 26 starts, he recorded 75 receptions for 804 yards (10.7 avg.) with six touchdowns.

Helm (6-4, 255) registered 69 catches for 767 yards (11.1 avg.) and six touchdowns in 38 career games with 24 starts while at Duke. He was named third-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference as a senior.

San Francisco signed Paul on July 26.
