Jimmy Gaines Grabs Attention of Scouts at Hurricaines Pro Day
APRIL 10, 2014, MIAMI, FL - University of Miami linebacker Jimmy Gaines brought his best game forward on Thursday, April 3, at the university's annual pro day.
Scouts from 30 NFL teams, including Dolphin's head coach Joe Philbin, were on hand to witness the 6' 1', 232 lbs., Getzville, NY, native run a 4.70 40-yard; complete a 9' 8' broad jump; and a 33' vertical jump.
These admirable numbers put Gaines right on par with the numbers from top linebacker picks at February's NFL Combine.
'There's definitely some areas I could have improved upon, but overall I'm happy with what I did,' said the 2013 Strength Training Athlete of the year. 'My position portions went extremely well, and I was able to show scouts my skills in the actual sport.'
Gaines' agent Derek Spearman only added to the praise of his client.
'Quote,' said Spearman.
