Pascoe is not
the most athletic TE and is not going to beat anyone with quickness
or speed. He does have some quickness getting off the ball cleanly.
Pascoe has adequate footwork to change directions which makes him a
decent route runner. He shows good body control when laying out
for a catch or adjusting to a poorly thrown ball.
Pascoe is a very
tough player and I think that's his forte. His production is
very lacking and inconsistent; his effort, however, is not lacking he
plays very hard and strong all the way to the whistle. Pascoe
gives maximum effort on every play and that is one of the things that
makes him a solid team player with a lot of pride.
Pascoe is a solid
player, he is not going to dissect the zone with the QB and pick apart
all the way down the field. He displays good instincts and reactions
especially on in line blocking and underneath the coverage.
Pascoe has excellent
size and strength to play TE in the NFL. He is an explosive player
driving right through people on blocks and he takes tremendous pride
in running through defenders in an effort to pick up extra yardage.
He has missed a little bit of time due to injuries but all in all he
is a durable, strong player.

Pascoe's aggressive attitude
and overall strength are his big assets. He plays with a killer
instinct when blocking, going after passes in traffic, or with the ball
trying to run you over to pick more yards. Pascoe's hands are
outstanding; he catches the ball strong away from the body which allows
him to make tough catches in traffic and with bodies draped on him.
knocks are speed, quickness, and over aggressiveness. Pascoe has
such a killer instinct that I think at times gets him out of position
(especially blocking in space). His lack of speed and quickness
is going to make him struggle to get separation against NFL defenders.
Bear Pascoe will probably be a
better asset as a special teams player and backup TE early on in the
NFL. Pascoe's ability to block kicks (career: 4 2008: 2) will
give him a chance to contribute right away for an NFL franchise.
He has good ability to make catches and be a solid receiver as a TE,
but his ability to be a very good blocker will give him more opportunities
in short yardage situations to come in and be an extra blocker.
Pascoe's lack of speed and quickness is going to hold him back as
a receiver until he can become a more effective route runner and learn
how to use his strength and intelligence to make plays.

Interesting comparison. If the excuses are true then I'd say this could definitely be the next Jay Cutler. Like a lot of athletes with talent and a drive to win, they can forget that they play on a team with egos/emotions and that it only takes one comment to throw shadow on dedication to one's task at hand. Comments about team or based in criticism can undermine the most heart-felt warrior and actually distract you with doing the two things they all strive for: improving and winning.
