You think fans from other teams are discussing and wondering what is going to happen with Devier Posey?? Not a chance. The only reason why he is even remotely relevant or even a subject of conversation around here is because he is a Texan that was drafted last season, and was probably going to be the next way over hyped guy that fans of this team get all excited about like they did with JJ and then Jean/Walter from a few pre season games.
Most teams expect starters out of rounds 1,2, & 3....and at least role players in round 4. By itself it isn't a catastrophic loss but it is a tangible loss if you are the kind of team that builds though the draft (yeah, they all do...semi-sarcasm here). Last time I checked they don't get that pick back and there are good players on other teams that are going to start next season that we passed on.
