Overview

Paschall was a productive running back averaging nearly seven yards a carry during his senior year at North Dakota State. He runs hard and is quick to make decisions, plant his foot in the ground and hit the hole. He runs with a good pad level and will keep his feet driving to gain yards after contact but lacks the size, power and bulk to break many tackles at the next level or to move piles on the goal line. He is a confident receiver out of the backfield but lacks the speed to stretch the secondary down the seam. While he lacks top lateral cutting range, he does have enough wiggle and shiftiness to avoid tacklers in traffic. He has had a couple of off-field issues over the years but still is apt to be looked at as a good gamble in the later rounds.

Analysis

Strengths

Paschall is a good-sized back who runs with a low center of gravity and fights for yards after contact. Shows good vision, anticipates running lanes and explodes through the holes. Has enough wiggle to make people miss at the second level and is a sure-handed receiver in the flat.

Weaknesses

Does not have the speed to break long runs and will struggle to get the edge against faster players in the NFL. Lacks the bulk necessary to consistently break tackles at the next level. Has had some off-field issues which make him a bit of a gamble.
