Senior Bowl director names Tennessee WR as potential breakout candidate in 2020
As a junior in 2019, Tennessee WR Josh Palmer was the Vols’ No. 3 receiving option behind Jauan Jennings and Marquez Callaway.
He managed to snag 34 passes for 457 yards and a touchdown, but he will need to do even more for the Vols in 2020.
With Callaway and Jennings off to the NFL, Palmer could be the top target this fall. Senior Bowl executive director Jim Nagy said on Twitter on Sunday that Palmer could be a breakout candidate this season if he gets some of those targets:
Despite having only 34 rec. and 1 TD last year, @Vol_Football WR Josh Palmer put good stuff on tape. One of toughest and best contested ball catchers in ‘21 draft. @seniorbowl expects Palmer to breakout if he gets bulk of Jennings & Calloway targets. 🇨🇦📈#TheDraftStartsInMOBILE pic.twitter.com/3PRlAq4b46FREE DOWNLOAD FROM SDS

At 6-2 and 195 pounds, Palmer has the versatility both to use his speed and size to make plays. Depending on who wins the starting quarterback job for the Vols, Palmer could indeed be a star in 2020.
