Conference: Missouri Valley
40 Time: 4.52
Biography: Three-year starter awarded All- American and All-Conference honors as a senior after career round numbers of 207/1397/16. Also added 12/186 as a pass catcher. Junior rushing totals included 108/601/2.
Positives: Sleek, quick footed ball-carrier who darts around defenders and creates his own yardage, following blocks, displays terrific quickness in his all-around game, and makes defenders miss. Finds the cutback lanes, quickly gets through them, and shows a burst of speed. Runs with good lean, effectively helps the quarterback sell ball fakes, and displays speed and agility to turn the corner. Put together a solid week of practice during the Shrine Game.
Negatives: Lacks strength in his game, does not break tackles or pick up much yardage off initial contact and was never much of a pass catching threat out of the backfield.
Analysis: Paschall is a smooth athlete with adequate running back size. Potentially a situational ball-carrier at the next level, he must really display pass catching ability out of the backfield besides adding elements such as return specialist to make a final NFL roster.
