Throughout Alabama football history, there were players among the best of their era, but their greatness wanes as time presses on. Whenever there is a Twitter poll for prominent Crimson Tide receivers, names such as Julio Jones, Amari Cooper, Jerry Jeudy, Calvin Ridley, Devonta Smith, and Jaylen Waddle quickly graces the screen.
Newer fans have no idea the enormous impact a matchless athletic five-foot-eight wide receiver, “The Deuce,” David Palmer had on Alabama football in the early 1990s.
Back then, an electrifying Palmer reminded me of a better, souped-up version of Rocket Ismail. He was like a gust of wind, leaving everyone in their wake.
