Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Omari Palmer

Position: Offensive Guard

Year: Redshirt Senior

Height: 6'3''

Weight: 321

Hometown: Coram, NY

High School: Longwood High School

2015 Stats: Palmer started all 12 games at right tackle after splitting time between tackle and guard in 2014.

2016 Projections: It seems Babers likes Palmer better on the interior line, as he was listed as the first-string right guard on the post-spring depth chart. Given that he is among the most experienced on the offensive line and has proven his versatility, it wouldn't be surprising to see him slide back out in case of an injury.

How'd He Get Here?: Palmer was the third player to commit in Syracuse's Class of 2012, and the offer from SU was the first he received.

What'd Recruiting Sites Say?: He was ranked as a two-star recruit by both 247Sports and Scout.

Money Quote: "I'm a senior. It's my fifth year. I might never play football again, so why not buy in?"

Links of Wonder: His LinkedIn profile lists him as a "Professional Student-Athlete at Syracuse University".

Twitterfeed: O_Palmer57

Tweets of Wonder: Unfortunately for us Syracuse fans, his Twitter profile is private.

What Does the Coaching Staff Think of Him?: None of the coaches have commented publicly about Palmer or any offensive lineman, but called the group "decent" and looks forward to watching them progress.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Palmer grew up a fan of the Orange, which must have made is college decision pretty easy.
