Josh Palmer WR Tennessee Draft Profile

Los Angeles Chargers Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 3 - Pick Number: 77 (LAC)
Strengths
  • Good quickness off the line. Has size and quickness to get off NFL press.
  • Has good body strength to squirm out of tackles with the coordination to maneuver his frame between defenders.
  • Has a knack for getting open and is a quarterback's best friend - passers just need to toss the ball in his area and he'll come down with it.
  • A long-striding athlete with good playing speed. Usually sure-handed with the concentration to snatch the ball out of the air.
  • Has the strong hands any NFL wide receiver coach and quarterback would covet. Tracks the deep ball over either shoulder and brings in passes fluidly without breaking stride downfield.
  • A savvy, natural pass-catcher with reliable hands and very good focus. Snatches the ball out of the air and shows the concentration to make acrobatic catches look easy.
  • Good effort and technique as a blocker for his size. Can beat the press with elusiveness or physical contact. Runs crisp routes with sharp cuts.
  • Balanced, savvy route runner with top field awareness, setting up and selling routes beautifully.
Weaknesses
  • Comes off the snap high and upright, and doesn't get to top speed quickly. Not sudden or elusive.
  • Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest.
