Wide receiver has been a huge area of emphasis in the NFL Draft over the last few seasons. A combined 96 wide receivers have been selected in the draft over the last three years. Only linebacker (109) has had more players selected in that span.

All of that should bode well for Josh Palmer, especially if he ends up being Tennessee’s top pass-catching target in 2020.

Palmer has flashed his potential multiple times in his Vol career. He has good speed and has a great frame at 6-foot-2, 200 pounds. He’s capable of going up and grabbing jump balls, and he has the physical tools to separate from SEC corners.

The problem for Palmer has been putting all that potential together and playing consistently.

The Canadian native has nearly recorded 500 receiving yards in back-to-back seasons as the third option behind Jauan Jennings and Marquez Callaway. Now, he’ll likely be the No. 1 wideout on Tennessee’s roster in 2020, with Deangelo Gibbs, Brandon Johnson, Velus Jones Jr., and a host of younger receivers rounding out the group.

If Palmer can take another step and prove himself capable of being the No. 1 target, his athleticism and potential will look even more appealing with improved production.
