Trey Palmer (Bucs, 6th round)
Another guy that I thought was a steal was former Nebraska/LSU wide receiver Trey Palmer who was selected in the sixth round by the Tampa Bay Bucs.
Palmer is an intriguing guy. He’s not really big at 6-foot, 180 pounds but he can play all over the field. Some view him as a slot, but he’s really more than that as he showed last season with the Cornhuskers when he caught 71 passes for 1,043 yards and nine touchdowns.
The QB play was inconsistent but Palmer was one of the best deep threats in college football. He caught a number of 70-yard touchdowns (three total) and another of more than 60. He also had a 60-yard run against Purdue, giving him five plays of 60 yards or more last season.
Beyond his ability as a receiver, Palmer can help in the return game. He also ran the 40-yard dash in 4.33 at the combine, so he is one of the best deep threats in this class. His hands are somewhat unreliable at times, but he’s got NFL draft steal written all over him.
