BIOGRAPHY: Former walk-on who moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore and then won all-Conference honors after his junior and senior seasons. Senior year receiving totals included 40/400/4 after 45 over/553/4 as a junior.

POSITIVES: "Solid pass-catching tight end with marginal athleticism. Plays with leverage, quickly releases off the line into routes, and nicely finds the open seams of the defense. Consistent hand catcher with natural receiving skills, and almost always extends to make the reception away from his frame. Comes away with the difficult reception in a crowd, takes a big hit and holds onto the throw. Flashes the ability to get into the secondary and create mismatches. Runs well laterally, adjusts to the errant throw, and makes the reception in stride."

NEGATIVES: "Struggles as a blocker, lacking strength and balance. Marginally fast and not consistently getting into the secondary creating mismatches. Displays limited quickness in his game."

ANALYSIS: Pascoe is a self-made prospect who has been productive the past three years. He does enough things well to find a home at the next level as a third tight end.

PROJECTION: Seventh Round/Free Agent
