I had Sanu rated higher than Posey pre-draft because Posey wasn't even on my board character/off the field issues.

Childs is coming off acl that shelved him the entire last season. Also would be based off tape two years ago, coming off injury.

Back to Posey. The Senior bowl also hurt his stock. Showed rust, could not finish plays or make easy catches. Which is a bit confusing because even though he couldn't play for Ohio State he was present @ all their practices working out & helping teammates, one would have thought he should have seized his opportunity to prove something to scouts. Well guess he did because Texans were there & liked what they saw, minus the drops. He has as good of ability to get off man as Blackmon or Floyd, he just doesn't have similar hands. Best described as average to better than average.

When all is said & done I don't think Texans could have done much better addressing someone who can become a true #2 WR in 3rd rd. while adding critical depth on the DL.
Senior Bowl is hard to gauge when you have several QBs throwing to several receivers. Their timing doesn't always mess with each other.

There were good observations and not so good observations during practices; same as most other receivers.

In the game, he ran a great route to beat the CB on the 33-yd catch.

He missed a catch in the endzone (timing must have played a little part in it); he was open and maybe was expecting a higher pass (and not a low one that Kellen Moore threw).
The main thing is that he got open unlike the previous play where the CB had good coverage on the other receiver (was it Criner or McNutt?) who ran the same route.

On the INT by Cousins, IMO, it was all Cousins' fault.
Posey ran a 10-yd out; he pushed the CB back then made the cut.
The CB had depth; the QB can't throw a corner pass like that.
