Pachall is not leaving school at least. Following the injury, which came in a Sept. 7 romp over Southeastern Louisiana, Pachall was quick to return to the football offices and offer any help necessary to Boykin and the other quarterbacks. It is possible he could be available to play for the Horned Frogs late in the season, as well as in a bowl game. - The Sports Xchange
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)
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.
