Nebraska Football: Take note of WR Trey Palmer in spring ball

When you take a look at this new Nebraska football group of wide receivers, there is no doubt that the room has a bit of a LSU feel to it. It makes sense, now that Mickey Joseph is in town.

On Wednesday, the Lincoln Journal-Star wrote a piece detailing some of the newcomers that can make an impact this spring.  One of the names that was on the list that they put together was wide receiver Trey Palmer. He is a guy that is very interesting to me, and I was really excited when Nebraska football was able to land him. Now, he gets a chance to show me what I think he brings to the table.

Palmer was able to grab 30 receptions for 344 yards and three touchdowns last season for LSU.

When I look at his film again, I see a player that has tremendous speed. It is in the defense’s best interest to not allow him into the open field. If they do, they are putting themselves in a bad spot. As soon as Palmer is able to catch the football, he uses that speed to get down the field. Deep throws are one of the many things he brings to the table. He can also use his speed to make things happen after the catch on something like a slant route for instance.

His speed is really the dominating part of his game here. He is able to use it effectively, and that allows him to be successful on multiple types of plays and route combinations. I could see him fitting very well in this Nebraska football offense. He gives them another playmaker that they can use to get down the field.

Given the amount of new faces at wide receiver, nobody is really locked into a starting spot at the position. As far as I’m concerned, wide receiver is one of the positions where anybody can win a battle. You have guys that may be considered favored, as Zavier Betts and Omar Manning figure to make a push at wide receiver. However, with Mickey Joseph in town now, I could see things changing a little bit.

He is one of the guys that intrigues me just due to his breakaway speed. Palmer is definitely somebody I could see making a name for himself over the course of spring ball,  and I’m curious to see what kind of dynamic he will bring to the room.
