BIOGRAPHY: Junior-college transfer who's been a two-year starter at Mississippi. Senior totals included 50/5/1 after 50/5/after 89/7/.5
as a junior.
POSITIVES: Palmer is an explosive linebacker who works hard to make plays. More of a chase and run down defender rather than a linebacker
who forces the action, he has backup potential in a one-gap system.
NEGATIVES: Undersized and taken out of the action by fullbacks. Does not display good feel for coverage. Not a surehanded tackler.
ANALYSIS: Athletic one-gap linebacker who makes plays sideline-to-sideline. Breaks down well, fluid moving out to the flanks and covers
a good amount of area on the field. Gets depth on pass drops, quickly changes direction and makes plays in pursuit. Can run
with tight ends or ball carriers in coverage down the field.
