Player Overview

For all of the attention heaped upon what could be an extraordinary group of underclassmen quarterbacks, not enough focus is being placed on a very intriguing class of seniors, including Pachall.

Teams will need to do all of their homework on Pachall, who left the Horned Frogs last year to enroll in an alcohol and substance abuse program but those close to the program say that he's much more mature now and no one questions his talent. Starting for the first time since breaking his non-throwing arm September 7, Pachall showed off his slingshot of a right arm against West Virginia, completing 40 of 58 passes for 394 yards and three touchdowns.

Pachall is the type of QB who could quietly creep up boards during all-star games, if he can reassure that his priority lies with football. (11/7/13)

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Incredibly quick release and a strong arm. Too many good tools for the position to be ignored. Showed a commitment to football by overcoming a broken arm to re-earn the starting job in November.

WEAKNESSES: Noted struggles with substance abuse in the past will lead to significant pre-draft interviews, and some teams may remove him from their boards altogether. Played in only four games before leaving the team in 2012 and suffered a broken left arm in September, meaning he has played only partial seasons each of the past two years.

09/12/2013 - With Pachall injury, QB job again is Boykin's...Casey Pachall did not have to return to TCU. After bouncing out of the program last season and entering a treatment program for substance abuse, Pachall could have tried to turn pro. That would have been a challenge, of course, but then so was returning to TCU and trying to quarterback the Horned Frogs again after playing four games last season and then leaving. After an arrest on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, Pachall and the TCU staff determined football was not in his best interest.

Not this season, however. Allowed to return to school for spring classes, Pachall participated in those drills, then competed with Trevone Boykin for the QB job. Named the starter for the first game, Pachall struggled and split time with Boykin. Then, in week two, Pachall fractured his left (non-throwing arm), an injury that will force him to miss eight weeks. - The Sports Xchange
