NFL Draft 2014: TCU QB Casey Pachall did not receive NFL Scouting Combine invitation


As of this moment, less than a month before the event, TCU Horned Frogs quarterback Casey Pachall has not yet received an invitation to the NFL Scouting Combine, according to the Star-Telegram.

Pachall didn’t have quite the year that he had envisioned in 2013, especially after fighting back as much as he had to get there.

The embattled QB left the team after four games in his junior season to deal with substance abuse issues. He completed the treatment he needed to and returned to school in January of 2013, where head coach Gary Patterson announced that he would more than likely be the team’s starter once again when the season began.

He did end up being the 2013 starter, but in an unfortunate event, the senior broke his arm, forcing him to miss the next five games.

Pachall finished his senior year with 1,468 yards.

At 6-5 and 230-pounds, Pachall has all the tools that the NFL scouts would be drooling over, but with the massive influx of underclassmen entering this year’s draft, getting an invite to show those tools–coupled with the off field issues and injuries–was near impossible.

There is still a chance, however, that he can make the trip to Indianapolis, but the report says that that’s highly unlikely.
