He has #2 written all over him. I think both of the wr picks are going to contribute this year.

I'm really hoping we can trade jacoby.

Yah, wasnt too sure about Posey at first, but watching more highlights and reading more gives me a positive feeling about his future here as a #2...the suspension crap? Meh, it's silly really...can he ball at WR?

We'll see, but i feel there's some hope there...

Columbus [Ohio] Dispatch’s Tim May on Devier Posey:
Humble, soft spoken, intelligent

One of my favorites I've ever covered at Ohio State since 1984

Nailed by NCAA for playing 5 holes of golf

His lawyer proved Posey worked the hours NCAA said he didn't

A lot of Ohio State players got the illegal free tattoos

Had 3 drops everyone remembers

Can stretch a defense, goes over the middle, runs great routes

Doesn't sound so evil after all.

Oops. I posted a link to this in its own thread. He also talks about Martin and what a great couple of WRs we got.

Bong just types stuff. His memory appears to be a little fuzzy. He does no research.

I think Posey enters the season as WR3. Walter is just to Texany to lose his spot, especially after taking his pay cut.

Walter is just too good in the run game to lose his spot .... They use him to chip DE's and OLB's when he comes in motion quite often.
He may not be the fastest or biggest .... But I saw a stat somewhere a while back that he lead the NFL in percentage of catches to targets in 2010 with something rediculous like 71%. I found that a bit shocking ..... He wasnt as good last year but he also had Yates instead of Schaub for a big chunk of the season.

Default Re: 3rd Round DeVier Posey WR Ohio State

From the
Battle Red Blog about half way down. I heard some of this same info on the radio.

"Posey was 3rd highest-ranked WR high school prospect in the country in 2008, right behind Julio Jones and AJ Green.
Pretty good company. His college career was going good (10.6 YPC in 2008, 13.8 YPC in 2009, 16.0 YPC in 2010) until the suspension in 2011. To put it in perspective, Julio Jones averaged less in 2010 (14.5 YPC in 2010), the year before he was drafted in the 1st round. AJ Green averaged less too (14.9 YPC) in 2010. This guy would have probably gone 1st round this draft if he had played."

I don't know if Walter loses his spot but he shouldnt keep it based on his run blocking. He's a receiver.

The ideal role for Walter, IMO, would be as a short yardage slot receiver. Good hands, tough and like you said can run block if needed.

But I doubt they ask Walter to take a pay cut if they saw him as the for sure #2. They probably would have cut him if he refused.

Yep. They have to expect him to be a situational player after this.

I think they expect Posey and Martin to be seeing the field. A lot.

I wonder if he got performance incentives built into the contract. Walter didn't do a lot as a receiver last year but he knows this offense and he performs a lot of functions in it. He's just reaching the end of his effective shelf-life and for a 7th round pick in 2003, he's had a heckuva career.

I can't wait to see him in a preseason game. That's when we'll know something about this guy. When the real NFL bullets start flying.

#2 as in solid but not special. Really good with a slim chance if being great.

Good hands, good body control, nice size, good speed. The more I see the more I like. I think he and Martin will see some action this season.


No not action as in a hook up.

One thing that IS good, unlike this new Jones kid who runs his mouth, is that the things Posey has said thus far...it sounds like he's learned and that he's ready to be for real.

This Jones kid, I swear, was Smith and Kubiak giving us a decoy to get off of Posey for awhile. He makes Posey look like Merlin Olsen.

The ideal Role for Walter is #3. He's a great possession receiver and is pretty large for a slot guy.His game is suited for a #3: great hands, isn't afraid to go over the middle, blocks in the run game, and knows where he is on the field.

I think drafting a guy like Posey is an indication of what this staff thinks of AJ and how much he has left in the tank as an elite WR. IMO if they drafted a guy like Hill or Randle, to me at least, its a good indication of not long as both physically have high ceilings. Posey strikes me a as developing into a good #2, but not #1.

Hopefully, but then again in Jacoby's first preseason he looked like a future superstar.
