Paddack is nowhere near a finished product, but he has a chance to be pretty special. The Texas A&M commit has a present average fastball (89-92 mph) with room to add more strength to his 6-foot-5, 200-pound frame, with more velocity to come. He mixes the fastball with a very advanced changeup for a high school pitcher that could end up as an above-average pitch. He's turned his curveball into a slider, which has given it a better look, but it's still fringy. Paddack needs to add strength and good weight, but if he does, he could be one to watch in a few years.
