Green Bay - The Packers have a history of drafting college defensive ends and turning them into outside linebackers and they've done it again.

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.

He may end up being a ST player. Hopefully he can contribute more.


Anyone read the new JSO piece on him, and what the Kevin Greene visit entailed? Holy crap. Sounds like this guy WILL be a player, and I hope he winds up being a steal for GB in R6.

It is a good read, but JSO has some stuff messed up with my account or I'd post a link...

BTW, I like what Greene did in this visit.

as you requested p2w

The first to respond was Kevin Greene. The Green Bay Packers outside linebackers coach was heading south soon, so he stopped at Illinois State and the two spent the day together.

As Greene and Nowinsky exchanged ideas - highlights of Clay Matthews looping on the screen - Nowinsky pictured his own edge rusher, Nate Palmer, in this defense.

"As I'm watching that, I'm thinking Nate has a great opportunity with the Packers because his skill, his athleticism, his work ethic, he fits in really good," Nowinsky said. "It's about getting an opportunity."

On his visit to Green Bay, the 6-foot-2, 248-pound Palmer eventually met Greene. They watched film of Matthews, and Greene offered a challenge.

"He said, 'I can get you there, if you want it. If you want to go there, I got what it takes to get you to that next level,' " Palmer said. "(He said), 'All you have to do is be a hard worker like him. I think that's the kind of person you are. Let's go. Let's go to that next level.' "

Palmer described his meeting with Greene as "an intense conversation."

I love the intensity of Coach Greene. He is going to get bumped up stairs soon. Maybe not in GB but somewhere. That will be a shame. He is very very very good at taking on players one on one and developing them. He is going to miss it when he has to deal with a larger group. GB will miss him if they are not the ones to promote him.

He always seems to have one player who he is working on and developing that fire he had.
