BIO: Four-year starter who moved in with the first team midway through his freshman campaign. All-Conference selection the past three seasons.
POSITIVES: Competitive, hard-working blocker who plays with a good degree of explosion. Quick off the snap, stays square and walls defenders from the action. Patient, recognizes blocking assignments and works well with teammates. Slides laterally and displays range in space.
NEGATIVES: Marginally effective in motion. Rarely finishes blocks.
ANALYSIS: Palmer is a competitive lineman who's been durable on the college level. Possesses marginal upside yet could stick as an inexpensive backup.
