Default DeVier Posey?

Dude hardly even played last year after taking part in the scandal that took down Ohio State's program.

Uncle Bob? I thought the Texans only took squeaky clean boys....

Thoughts on this pick?

Default Re: DeVier Posey?

Smooth route runner with some burst, exaggeration at top of routes. Lacks run after catch ability, dips shoulder into contact, but once momentum is stopped won't gain many yards. Can get really lazy on his movements, read and glide them off. Thin frame, high posture on initial stem without much initial burst. Reliable catcher over the shoulder, consistent. QB shouldn't put confidence in him to win contested catches.

Let me tell you my opinion of why they prefered Posey over Randall -


They both come from run oriented offenses and Posey is the more polished reciever. He put up the numbers as a Soph and a Jr compared to Randall's one year of production.

Randall is more of a project , and this team is in "Win Now Mode". They need a guy who can come in and contribute yesterday , not in two or three years.
Randall might have the higher ceiling but right now , Posey is the superior WR and can come in and impact this team instantly.

I really think if he had played his Sr season in full he would have gone no later than the second round.

That's a post full of speculation.

I know you liked Posey before tonight, and you know you'l have a desire to protect your prediction of him. But I want to see where you had him slated in round 3...IIRC, you had said "later in the draft" which makes me think you didn't have a round 3 grade on him. Not being a-hole about it, just curious as to what your projection on him was.

I don't mind being confused on draft day. There have certainly been several players I thought were going to be usefull NFL players who were anything but.

AS to being disappointed...why? Why be disappionted in a guy before he has even been assigned a locker and a number. At the very least wait till after this season to be disappointed, I'll wait two season before becoming diappionted an any of the players taken in this draft.

My concern isn't for the player specifically...more that I think most internet draftniks thought him a 5/6th round prospect. Trading back while Sanu AND Randle are there in the 2nd...and then not getting either of them, instead reaching for a guy with some big question marks...

Didn't particularly care for that bit. Still good players on the board though and the Texans are locked and loaded for an mid round bonanza. Let's do it!

There's that logic thing again.

You've been around here long enough to know it's all about FO incompetence and pissin' and moanin' because obviously there are many here that know more about every player coming out. After all, we have stacks of drug store magazines, a top-flite MB and the whole f'kn internet to come to the conclusions as to who the Texans should draft. All they hafta do is log on!

But do you think they'd do that? Hell no! They're going to rely on their scouts & coaches that have been doing this stuff for their entire professional lives, private investigators going all over the country interviewing countless witnesses, coaches, teachers and whomever else they deem necessary to draw their silly conclusions.

After all, they ARE THE SMARTEST MEN IN THE ROOM.

I think he will challenge Maehl for the #4 WR spot.
