TCU beat writer Mac Engel has been told by multiple NFL sources that QB Casey Pachall has not been invited to the Combine.
"There is a chance, however slim, Pachall may still score an invite but it's a long shot," Engel writes. The quarterback showed promise back in 2011, but missed a majority of the 2012 season due to off-field issues. He had a down senior year and injuries did not help his case.

TCU senior QB Casey Pachall will play in the Medal of Honor all star game.

This is the inaugural year for the event that will take place on January 11. Pachall had a bright future early in his career, showing a gun slinger's mentality. However, off-field issues led to a suspension and Pachall's game looked very rusty this season.

TCU senior QB Casey Pachall completed 20 of 36 attempts for 245 yards and two touchdowns in a 21-17 win over Iowa State.

It has been a tough season for Pachall, which is expected after missing so much time last year due to an off-field issue. He then suffered a broken arm and missed a couple of months of action. We wonder if he gets a shot in the NFL. Pachall flashed talent in 2011.

TCU senior QB Casey Pachall will be available for Saturday's game against Texas.

Pachall has been healing from a broken arm since early September. prior to the injury and surgery, Pachall looked very rusty after missing the majority of last season after entering a substance abuse program. He has been practicing for a week, and there's a chance Pachall plays if Trevone Boykin struggles. Which is likely.

TCU senior QB Casey Pachall (arm) is doubtful to play in Saturday's game against Texas.

Horned Frogs coach Gary Patterson said Tuesday that Pachall hasn't yet been ruled out, so there's a chance we might see him on the field against the Longhorns. Pachall, who broke his left (non-throwing) arm in September against SE Louisiana, was cleared to resume practicing last week. TCU is 1-3 in Big 12 play in Pachall's absence.

TCU senior QB Casey Pachall is expected to return to the field soon, but not this weekend against Oklahoma State.

The initial prognosis in September stated Pachall would miss eight weeks of action, and around seven weeks have passed. The quarterback broke his left forearm in three different places. Two have healed, while the third has slowed the recovery. TCU is 5-8 with Trevone Boykin as a starter, and 16-3 in games Pachall has started.

TCU senior QB Casey Pachall will miss at least eight weeks with a fractured left forearm.

Pachall underwent surgery on Saturday. The timetable leaves Pachall available for the last three games of the season, at best. Trevone Boykin will take over the starting spot after doing the same last season when Pachall took the semester off due to substance issues. Boykin is a runner first, so expect TCU's offense to look slightly different.

TCU head coach Gary Patterson has already ruled senior QB Casey Pachall out for next week's game against Texas Tech with a left forearm injury.

Patterson was also asked about Pachall's health and stated it "probably (is) not good." Paschall has looked very rusty after missing the majority of last season due to substance issues. He has a live arm and isn't afraid to test coverages, but he looked lost at times and struggled with placement. Trevone Boykin will start in his place.

TCU senior QB Casey Pachall injured his left wrist during Saturday's game against SE Louisiana and was taken to the locker room.

Pachall looked rusty again, completing eight of 14 attempts for 100 yards. He stayed down after a scramble after going down awkwardly on his left side. Trevone Boykin, who has starting experience, replaced Pachall. No details have been released on the extent of Pachall's injury.

TCU head coach Gary Patterson announced senior Casey Pachall remains the team's starting QB.

Pachall looked a bit rusty against LSU, completing nine of 16 attempts for 75 yards and an interception. Trevone Boykin came in as a change of pace quarterback, but Pachall will at least take the first snaps against SE Louisiana. The senior's placement and timing looked out of sorts, but he has a downfield arm and isn't afraid to test coverages.

TCU has not named a starting quarterback and senior Casey Pachall and sophomore Travone Boykin are still splitting first-team reps in practice.

Travone Boykin threw for more than 2,000 yards and recorded 15 touchdowns in nine starts last season while Pachall was away from the team. Pachall is a true pocket gunslinger while Boykin struggles when confined and prefers instead to escape and do his work on the edge. LSU coach Les Miles said his defensive troops are ready for both quarterbacks. We'll find out on Saturday night in Dallas.

After talking to several scouts, NFL Network's Bucky Brooks believes the draft process will involve more information gathering and less film evaluation.

Some teams use their area scouts as information gatherers more than others, since that evaluator is on location at school campuses. This involves speaking with college coaches and staff, social media research, and even high school coaches or mentors. Rather than have multiple evaluations on a prospect, decision makers could force some evaluators to focus on the off-field issues while keeping a core group of talent scouts to watch tape. Expect the research done on prospects to be ramped up this season.

NFL teams might use police experts to to check into prospects' tattoos, according to CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman.

Feldman heard the news via a longtime NFL personnel man, but no specifics were given regarding a league wide movement or not. We are guessing teams want to know if prospects have gang signs or other symbols tattooed on their body. Aaron Hernandez might not have fit into this category, but he has certainly sprung NFL evaluators into action regarding future prospects.

Former NFL scout John Middlekauff believes 2014 draft prospects' "character will be heavily scrutinized this season."

Character is always an important part of the evaluation process, but with the recent NFL players' newsworthy actions (in a negative way) teams could value a clean off-field history even more. It is a long way until May, and we certainly think decision makers will still jump on the chance to take a talented player with questions in the later rounds.

Former NFL scout John Middlekauff talked to multiple personnel members who dislike the possible Combine changes that could affect academically ineligible players.

"Multiple area scouts were not for it, believing it would just make the process more difficult, bailing out the NCAA (and) not helping the NFL," Middlekauff tweeted. Another scout questioned, "Isn't the Combine about the medical aspect of the player? What does his GPA have to do with that?" A decision does not seem imminent at this time.
