Ourlads' Profile:

2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JOSH PALMER: Tennessee, 6012 210 4.45. Four-year starter, Brampton, Ontario, Canada. Came to Tennessee as an overlooked recruit that was very raw to the game after being a star basketball player growing up. He is tougher and more physical than the guy that he is up against at all times. He plays such a physical and aggressive brand of football that it makes up for some skill set shortcomings. More than fast enough, he has plus-burst in short areas, and he can go up and get it. Has some rawness to the techniques and mechanics the position requires, but he is a pure gamer who will make things happen with the ball in his hands. Projects to be a solid number two or three option in a good passing offense. Thick like a running back that will play taller and longer than his listed size. Has a wide radius matched with an ultracompetitive spirit. Attacks the ball with his hands. Comes back to the ball hard and will immediately look for green once he has it. Can break tackles in a variety of ways. Stiff arm replicates a big time running back. Sharp cuts and explosive in short areas with good vision. Has developed his route running to the point where he can get open on all areas of the route tree. Needs to get better off the line. Doesn’t avoid contact and will get caught up. Footwork and overall agility look tight and unnatural. Didn’t run a wide array of routes. Never caught more than 34 balls in a season. Still has some mechanical and consistency issues within his skill set. 2020 stats: 33-475, 14.4 ypr, 4 TD. Fourth/fifth round. (A-33, H-9 3/8, VJ-34, SS-4.24).
