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."
In the Senior Bowl must include practices, most coaching/staffs (unless they're actually coaching) are gone by game time, leaving contingent skelton crew of scouts on hand (my understanding), maybe Texans are exception to this rule? We as fans have only limited exposure to practices (what the network shows us) so its generally an incomplete grade. In the game we get to see how practice transferred to playing speed, how fact prospects picked up NFL coaching, stuff like that but still its only one game. People have all kinds of opinions, like after watching any game regarding how some players performed, here is one example form Walter Cherepinsky

DeVier Posey, WR, Ohio State
Did DeVier Posey think the Senior Bowl was on Sunday, or something? He played like he was sleepwalking through this game. He dropped a couple of passes and stopped his route on one occasion, resulting in a Kirk Cousins interception. I don't see how Posey can be selected prior to the sixth round at this point.
http://walterfootball.com/seniorbowl2012game1.php with regards to in the game grade, hence I doubt Texans really elevated his grade based on his performance in the Senior Bowl as much as his performance all week in practice & previous tape from past seasons, IMO.
