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.
BTW, I happened to keep a copy of the Chronicle (my wife subscribe for the Sunday Edition for the Ads) to have the UDFA list readily on hand.
Below it is a piece from Jerome Solomon; he quoted Kubiak as followed.
Kubiak and Smith say that after seeing Posey in
the Senior Bowl, they had no concern that he might be behind other rookies in term of development.
"He looked like himself," Kubiak said.
"I studied him real hard as a junior, and after watching him in
that all-star game he looked like a better player than when I saw him as a junior.
I really liked what I saw."
