Eric Paschall’s game is tailor-made for the modern day NBA. Offensively, he is what many teams would classify as the prototypical stretch four because of his ability to space the floor on offense, hit in rhythm and open three-point shots (35% 3pt shooter), while also setting screens and making the right passes to find other quality looks for his teammates. Paschall has good size at 6’9 (6'6"-6'9") 255 pounds and the mobility many teams covet in their frontcourt players. He also doesn’t need plays called for him, as he knows how to make the hustle plays around the basket. Paschall is a quality athlete that can finish above the rim, and play with grit when attacking the glass. He's quick off the floor, two-foot jumper, a natural trait he uses on both ends of the floor.
Defensively he shows a constant desire to compete and play with heart on each possession. While he’s effective at doing the dirty work as a low post defender, Paschall must continue to improve on his effectiveness when switching out on smaller guards in pick and roll action. Overall as a prospect, Paschall has succeeded at the highest level in college in his role of the do-it-all forward for the National Champions. To put it simply, Eric Paschall plays winning basketball. He's completely changed his mentality and bought into the culture of Villanova. Going into this season it will be interesting to see if he can elevate his effectiveness on offense as a more primary scorer/playmaker, as well as his ability to keep defending at a championship level.
