Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Palmer tracks the ball well downfield and consistently runs under long throws.
  • 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.
  • He shows suddenness off the line of scrimmage and accelerates quickly, and his top-end speed is among the best in this draft.
  • Palmer plays with a smoothness and balance, and Palmer shows a knack for setting up defensive backs.
  • Displays deep speed - Louisiana state champion in the 200-meter dash all four years of high school
  • Does a nice job locating and tracking deep passes and is a legitimate vertical threat. Willing to go up and attack the ball.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • In consistent catcher - will need to improve concentration.
  • Route running is only average
  • He seems comfortable in traffic to the point where Palmer doesn’t always make the effort to create separation.
Scouting Report: Summary
