Tyron Johnson earned the spotlight on Friday at Chargers training camp and while he put together another solid outing on Saturday, it was rookie Josh Palmer who drew the majority of the attention with a few eye-popping plays.
The first one was a catch made along the boundary from a pass thrown by quarterback Chase Daniel, as Palmer showed tracking and leaping ability and body control to reel the football and stay in bounds.

The next came during 11-on-11, as Palmer got open on a crossing route and QB Justin Herbert found him wide open down the field and he was able to run loose for a few more yards before being touched.

Aside from Keenan Allen, Palmer and Johnson have been the most impressive out of the receiver group thus far.
Given the fact that offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi goes through a lot of different personnel packages depending on the defense they’re up against, Palmer will have his fair share of opportunities.
With his ability to separate at all levels of the field and reliable hands, Palmer could quickly establish himself as a viable target this upcoming season.
