PROSPECT SUMMARY - JOSH PALMER
Josh Palmer enjoyed a flashy career at Tennessee where he made some spectacular plays but never could become an overly productive piece of the Volunteers offense. After being the third option in the passing game for most of his career behind Marquez Callaway and Jauan Jennings, Palmer was expected to have a breakout campaign in 2020. However, erratic quarterback play and a bumbling Tennessee offense prevented that. As it would turn out, 2020 was very similar to 2018 and 2019 for Palmer. Palmer brings good size, athleticism, hands, and ball skills to the table. With that said, he has notable room for growth when it comes to developing his route-running technique, expanding his route tree, and implementing more variance with his release packages. Palmer is a gifted receiver but he suffered from poor coaching and quarterback play at Tennessee. There is a learning curve ahead from Palmer, but he very well could end up being a more impactful NFL receiver than he was in college.
