Nate Palmer, from the Chicago Trib:

During his one and only visit to Green Bay, Palmer met with Packers outside linebackers coach Kevin Greene and discussed the team’s 3-4 defense.

"The visit with the Packers went real well," Palmer said. "They got a chance to get some medical things cleared up. I got a chance to meet with Coach Greene and just talk about football and life.

"I’m more comfortable in a 3-4 scheme, but I have played regular linebacker in a 4-3. It would just be knocking the rust off. It wouldn’t be all new to me."

Palmer understands there is a chance he might not get drafted but remains hopeful for at least late-round consideration. The 6-foot-2, 248-pound prospect opened some eyes while working out during a pro day at Northwestern, where he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.7 seconds, completed 20 reps in the bench press, and posted nearly a 36-inch vertical leap.

Palmer, who had 17 sacks at Illinois State, also has drawn interest from the Ravens, Colts, Eagles, Jets, Buccaneers, Vikings, Chiefs, and Dolphins.

"I’ve heard anything from the fourth to the sixth round from my agent," Palmer said. "We’ll just wait and see what happens."

Love this pick.

Quote:
At the Northwestern campus Pro Day workout, Palmer ran the 40-yard dash in 4.7 seconds.

The 6-foot-2, 248-pound Illinois transfer bench pressed 225 pounds 20 times and registered a 35 1/2 inch vertical leap, a 10-5 broad jump, a 4.37 20-yard shuttle and a 6.98 three-cone drill.

Palmer is a Chicago native who had 9 1/2 sacks, 46 tackles, 10 1/2 tackles for losses and two forced fumbles in his first season at Illinois State.


I've heard he's very good in coverage.

College2Pro.com has learned per source that Illinois State OLB/DE Nate Palmer is visiting the Green Bay Packers today (April 7th) and the Chicago Bears (April 12th). Palmer played in the 2013 NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. Palmer, a defensive end from Chicago, was named a 2012 All-Missouri Valley Conference Second-Team selection in his final season with the Redbirds, in 2012. Palmer ranked second on the team and was fourth in the MVFC with 7.5 sacks on the season and was fifth in the conference with 15 tackles-for-loss. In the FCS quarterfinals against No. 4 Eastern Washington, Palmer recorded seven tackles, including one for a loss, and a sack to go along with a pass breakup and one quarterback hurry.

It seems like he is going to be a ST player if he makes the team. But that is fine too. They need quality on STs.
