Position battles are starting to heat up at Chargers training camp.

While Monday marked the first day of pads, which will see the needle start to move in certain groups, wide receiver Josh Palmer has been making his case as the third wide receiver since camp opened up.

Palmer, the second-year player, continued to shine in practice, consistently creating separation with great routes and catching everything thrown in his direction.

That included his highlight play of the day, a sliding catch near the sideline with cornerback Asante Samuel Jr. in tight coverage.

Palmer’s competition for the job, Jalen Guyton, has also made plays throughout camp by stressing corners vertically with his deep speed.

However, while Guyton is more experienced, Palmer has proven from his rookie season and now up to this point that he has more of an all-rounded skillset to play the Z receiver, with his impressive route running, reliability, and ball skills.
