BIOGRAPHY: Full-time starter the past three seasons after seeing extensive action with the first team as a freshman. Senior totals included
85/13/3 after 83/3/4 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Palmer possesses the physical skills to play at the next level as a back-up middle linebacker, and he looks as though he offers
potential on special teams.
NEGATIVES: Shows minimal force up the field on the blitz, and is taken out of the action by tight ends. Marginal ball skills in coverage.
ANALYSIS: Explosive one-gap linebacker who goes hard sideline-to-sideline. Displays a good head for the ball, fires up the field in
run defense, and is fluid turning his hips in coverage. Breaks down well, flashes on the scene, and plays with a good degree
