Packers agreed to terms with No. 193 pick OLB Nate Palmer on a four-year contract.

A college defensive end, Palmer is built at 6-foot-2, 248 just like how Mike McCarthy wants his special teamers to be. Palmer will open his career attempting to record tackles in kickoff and punt coverage if he makes the 53.

Packers selected Illinois State LB Nate Palmer with the No. 193 overall pick.

Palmer (6-foot-2, 248) played defensive end for the Redhawks but will transition to outside linebacker in Green Bay's 3-4. He ran a 4.7-flat forty with explosive jumps of 35 1/2" in the vertical and 10-foot-5 on the broad. The Packers like their special teamers to be built like Palmer, in the 240-260 pound range with good straight-line speed. He won't play on defense as a rookie.
