Paillot was promoted to the Lyon first team for the 2007–08 Ligue 1 season. He was given the squad number 32, but later changed to 15. He made his club debut in Lyon’s preseason tour of South Korea, as the club took part in the Peace Cup, and appeared in all four matches.
In the season, Paillot appeared in Lyon’s 4–0 victory over Ligue 2 side US Créteil in the French Cup, on January 6, 2008, as a substitute. He made his first team debut on January 23, in Lyon’s 2–0 win over FC Lorient, again subbing in. On January 31, Paillot joined Ligue 2 outfit Grenoble Foot 38, on loan for the remainder of the season. After returning to Lyon, it was announced that Grenoble were looking to secure Paillot on another loan deal. After weeks of speculation, it was finally announced that Paillot would return to Grenoble on loan, this time for the entire 2008–09 season.
Paillot was a unanimous selection to the French U-20 squad that participated in the 2007 Toulon Youth Festival. He remained eligible to participate in 2009 UEFA U-21 Championships, however he has yet to receive a call-up during the qualification phase. He did, however, receive his first cap and call-up to the France U-21 squad participating in a friendly against the Czech Republic.
