Nebraska football wide receiver Trey Palmer continues to pick up more accolades, as he was selected to the Reese’s Senior Bowl on Saturday evening. He accepted the invitation on Twitter.

Palmer had a tremendous season for Nebraska. He recorded 71 catches for 1,043 yards and nine touchdowns. He was a deep threat in every sense of the word, averaging 14.7 yards per reception.

Palmer managed to serve as a key weapon for quarterback Casey Thompson, and the statistics showed that. He had at least five receptions in eight games this season and had three games with over 100 receiving yards.

Nebraska football had two representatives at the Senior Bowl last season. Linebacker JoJo Domann and cornerback Cam Taylor-Britt appeared in the game. They were not the only Nebraska football representatives at the collegiate showcase games. Wide receiver Samori Toure played in the 2022 Shrine Game. He had five catches for 32 yards and two touchdowns in the game.

This could be a big chance for Palmer, who looks to continue showcase himself on a national level. He finishes his college career with 112 receptions for 1,501 yards and 12 touchdowns. Palmer projects as the 157th overall player in the draft and the 20th overall wide receiver per NFLDraftBuzz.com.

It will be intriguing to see if the Senior Bowl can raise Palmer’s stock a bit. The Shrine Game was able to help out Toure’s cause, and Palmer may benefit from it as well. His big-play ability and crisp route running could help him succeed in today’s NFL. Measuring in at six-foot-one, 190 pounds, he could be the perfect fit for a team with a pass-heavy scheme.
