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.
exactly, so take the senior bowl with a grain of salt. what's important is actually breaking down tape on individual plays like the ones above you described. the draft is sometimes more about timing than a reflection of true value or grade. I'm guilty of under-valuing Posey grade because of character concerns, not seeing him on the field this past season & in general lack of exposure/information. This is something NFL teams have the means & access we as amateur draft geeks lack insight/info. I have no problem adjusting my opinion based off known facts & recent discoveries addressing problems in the past being resolved & giving a young person second chances.
