2023 NFL Draft

Pick 191 is not what I think anyone expected when he declared. Lots of folks around here were thinking 2nd or 3rd rd.

Gotta figure Palmer and Nelson pissed money away by not coming back and working deficiencies in their games imo
Palmer was a Micky guy and as we have seen with those plyers No Micky no play at NU.
I don't know if Nelson would have improved enough in my opinion he would have been sitting here still this time next year

There was a lot of criticism of Palmer from scouts. Not a good route runner and poor hands are commonly mentioned. If not for his speed, he wouldn't have been drafted.

I tend to think few players have regrets, so long as they're drafted. But no doubt Palmer could have benefited from another year in college under a better coaching staff.

Nelson had great motor but really didn't have the speed and athletic ability to play outside. I always thought he would better at a Sam backer
 
Just read an article that 6th and 7th rounders have only a 10-15% of making an opening day roster. Didn't address practice squads. I don't know about Nelson, but with only 10 of the 70 drafted WR being selected after him looks like Palmer definitely hurt his NFL chances by leaving early. Drafted Nebraska players have been scarce over the past 4-5 years, so I'll definitely be pulling for the kid!

I said 4th round for Palmer at best and you guys laughed at me lol….our best player was the 191st best player in draft….this is worse than pathetic….
