Pros

Grew as a player every year, despite it not showing on the stat sheet. Was the focal point of Old Dominion's offense, and he took it in stride and lead the team.

Has quick movement to generate space.'Hands' catcher who rarely lets ball into his body. Great awareness as a blocker and on boundary throws. High points the ball with ease.

Cons

Long strider. Needs to be sharper with his routes for the NFL level.

Level of competition nowhere near close to what he will face on Sundays. Needs to be quicker in his breaks.

Zach Pascal is a three-year starter who was the focal point of his offense. He was the leader of the team. His game needs a lot of refining, which was never going to come at Old Dominion.

He's a bit of a project for wide receiver coaches before making an impact on a pro offense, but has enough returner skill to contribute there, and elsewhere, on special teams.

Fit With The Broncos

Pascal would be a developmental guy, which Denver has a tendency to pick up as college free agents post-draft. With his ceiling, they could take a look his way and see what he has a returner to help right away.

At the very least, Pascal could compete for a practice squad spot.
