He sure has great size, long arms, some good speed to go along with it. If he has a good moter watch out for Palmer.

as you requested p2w


there are parts of the article I skipped over. read the rest here


Cool article - didn't know they recruited this way - meaning sometimes its just the proximity of someone visiting and making a connection with the coach and or player and then they have their guy.

Hope he works out and he takes inspiration from cm3

imagine 2 cm3s and our new DE on the front line rushing the QB.

Every once in awhile the thinnest of threads gets a player into the pros. I am sure it is the same for footballers (soccer players for you troglodytes) too. All the teams go to the combine. Most teams will attend player's pro days. But it is doing these kinds of things that lead you to diamonds in the rough. truth be told Kevin probably wouldn't have dropped by if Palmer was going to school in Vermont or New Mexico. It was on his way and he was willing to give up a few hours of his time so he did it.

These are the fun stories. All the more so if Palmer is able to play for a few years. If he is able to become a starter he will have to set aside a few bucks for his college coaches retirement fund. [grin1]

I love it... now I really hope this kid pans out for the Packers.. just to piss in the cheerios of a couple Bears fans..

Nate... hopefully you will soon be freed from your illness that goes along with being a Bear fan.

Friends, co-workers and classmates of Nate Palmer are still processing what happened and how to react to it. Living in what Palmer described as "the heart of Bears Country," the Green Bay Packers' sixth-round draft pick has suddenly joined up with the enemy, leaving those around him a bit conflicted.

"Every time I see someone now, they say, 'I'm going to cheer for you, but not the team,'" Palmer said in an interview with FOXSportsWisconsin.com. "I told them you can't get one without the other. A few of my friends who were Bears fans said they're going to jump on the Packers' bandwagon."

Up until only a couple weeks ago, Palmer was just like his friends, actively rooting against Green Bay.

"I've always been a Bears fan," Palmer said. "Times have changed. Right now, you can't be a fan anymore. The fan in you has to go away for this process."

Palmer is making himself an easy target for those he's come across in Illinois since the draft. The team gave him a hat and T-shirt, and Palmer has been wearing the green and gold Packers hat every day on campus and around his hometown.

"People keep telling me I've got the wrong hat on," Palmer said.

One of his co-workers at an internship in Illinois went beyond just criticizing his choice in headwear. A woman named Christie left a note on Palmer's desk after he returned to the office the week following the draft.

"As a loyal Bears fan, I'm sorry to say that I can no longer speak to or work with you," the note read, which Palmer posted on his Twitter account. "I feel betrayed."

I can't wait to see this guy play... He and Perry should make for a good rotation at OLB.

TT seems to like the players that were highly rated coming out of high school but got lost in the college "shuffle". Maybe he sees something that he feels better coaches can bring out of a player.

Another nice thing about players from small schools/UDFA: No guaranteed spot/no ego=easier to coach

Hopefully he turns out good, but from what I have read, I have more hope for that UDFA Mulumba.

Lets hope that he has more mental toughness than D.Rose.. yeah.. not much more than to take a shot at a Bulls player here.

One thing is clear.. Palmer made an impact on the Illinois State football program.

Another side note.. and probably the reason this article grabbed my attention. Spence Nowinsky. I remember him playing in Wausau and in the area.. pretty good high school player. I don't remember ever playing against him though.. maybe we traded barbs in a camp someplace along the lines though. Makes me sound freaking old.. lol.

What sold the Redbirds on Palmer was his mild-mannered intelligence and wide-ranging athletic background after playing basketball at Simeon High School in Chicago with future Bulls' guard Derrick Rose.

Yeah, wow. This kid could be a steal.

I'm trying really hard to temper my enthusiasm for Palmer, Perry, Manning and Mulumba adding to Bishop, Hawk, Matthews, Jones and Moses. The entire unit should be vastly improved this year.

Great article, and encouraging to hear their effusive praise of Nate Palmer.

I've heard Palmer is versatile enough to play inside or outside. I wonder if maybe that's why the rumor that the Packers were shopping Bishop. If he doesn't look 100% in camp I think he may become a cap casualty with late cuts. Like with the D-Line, I am really liking the depth at LB. If the starting 4 are CM3, Perry, Hawk and Bishop and then you have Jones, Palmer and Mulamba rotating in? Compare that to the rest of the division, where there is no depth at the positio, and you might argue none of the other 3 teams can even fill their 3 starting spots qith quality players.
