BIOGRAPHY: All-Conference selection as a senior after posting 103/6.5/2, while intercepting two passes and breaking up another pair. Junior totals included 53 tackles in four starts.

POSITIVES: Paschal took his game to another level last season, and he went from draft afterthought to free-agent pickup. He overcomes his lack of physical skills with intelligent play on the field, and he could compete for a back-up job in a system that allows him to freely flow to the action.

NEGATIVES: Undersized and easily taken from the action by blocks. Possesses poor size/speed numbers.

ANALYSIS: Intelligent, hard-working linebacker who consistently puts himself in a position to make plays on the ball. Fluid moving to the sidelines, covers a good amount of area on the field and gets depth on pass drops. Remains disciplined, displays excellent recognition, and aggressively works to get involved. Quick up the field in run defense, and wraps up tackling.
