Nate Palmer wasn’t fooling himself. After taking only one predraft visit — with the Green Bay Packers — the Illinois State defensive lineman had minimal expectations for the 2013 NFL draft.

That one meeting, however, turned out to be all that mattered.

Coming off a senior year with the Redbirds in which he registered 71 tackles (15 for a loss) with 71/2 sacks, the 6-foot-21/8, 248-pound Palmer received a pleasant surprise when the Packers nabbed him with their sixth-round selection (No. 193) a little more than a week ago.

Palmer said the visit with the Packers went well, but it’s often been general manager Ted Thompson’s practice to take looks at potential undrafted free agents leading up to the draft rather than bringing in more highly regarded prospects.

I like this pick. Can't wait to see what he can do.
