Bucs add speedster

By Jared Smola | Updated on Sat, 29 Apr 2023, 5:22 PM EDT

The Buccaneers grabbed Nebraska WR Trey Palmer in Round 6 of the NFL Draft. Palmer took a while to get going, breaking out as a 21-year-old fourth-year player after transferring from LSU. Last season, though, found him drawing 33% of Nebraska's targets, 35% of receptions, 39% of yardage, and 53% of TDs. He set school records for single-season and single-game receiving yards and was a productive returner at LSU. Palmer ran the fastest 40 time among WRs at the Scouting Combine (4.33 seconds) and was a state sprinting champ in high school. He hits the NFL raw as a route runner but will have time to develop behind Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Russell Gage. There's intriguing upside here, but the sixth-round draft capital makes Palmer only a late-round rookie-draft consideration.
