Seems like he is going to do what he wants rather be the "face adversity head on" guy the article states he is.

I thought the same thing about tressel, but are you mixing posey and jones together?

Or did posey also do that?

I believe you're confusing Devier Posey with Dwight Jones.

Default Re: 3rd Round DeVier Posey WR Ohio State

The more I watch of Posey the more I'm encouraged. He runs really smooth and crisp routes. That bodes well in the type of offense we run. The key to him adjusting is going to be his football IQ. Everyone can kind of agree that Jacoby just fell flat in this area. I can see him being on the field as WR2 about midway of the season.

It really stinks how the new CBA limits the amount of workouts and camps in the off-season so I'm curious to see how the rookies adapt. It didn't seem to hurt many guys after last year's lockout though. Although I would like to add a guy like Braylon Edwards, I can see us going into the season with AJ, KW, and the kids.

Like others have said, you're confusing Posey's "character" issues with Dwight Jones' character issues.

Posey is the guy who sold his own personal ring so his mother could keep her electricity on. He got 5 games for that. Then he worked his job and got paid the union rate. And he got 5 games for that because the union rate for the job was more than the NCAA allowed.

And during those 10 games, he played the scout team QB and continued to work with the team.

badboy has been watching too much footbal, it's easy to confuse one guy from another; heck, a lot of the receivers in this draft class look similar to one another!

Larry Fitzgerald sponsors a WR camp that I think Cris Carter & Jerry Rice help with. I can't recall if any of our draft picks have attended before ... I wonder why???

Seems like you'd want your rookies to spend some time with those greats ... ?

No even moderately high WR pick since Jacoby Jones down?

Thanks for posting. DeVier is a damn good interview and really sharp. I was impressed his "cerebral approach" to the game.

Can't wait to learn from Andre. Imagine that?

Default Re: 3rd Round DeVier Posey WR Ohio State

Here's an SI.com article on Posey, specifically the Texans' choice of him, and a few screen shots that they analyzed.

Pretty decent article. Here's an excerpt:

Quote:
The 6-foot-2, 211-pound Posey has a high quota of playmaking ability and, if he’s single-covered while teams pay attention to Johnson, looks like he can find some seams. The play below comes from Ohio State’s win over Miami in 2010, with Pryor at QB.

Posey ran a pretty simple corner route, but in the process managed to both beat the press coverage on the line and accelerate into space beyond the deep safety.

And...

Quote:


Posey’s there with space, but Pryor’s throw sailed a bit. Worse yet, for our specific study, Posey short-armed his catch attempt, no doubt hearing the footsteps from the closing safety.

That’s an issue that comes up again and again with Posey. He’ll go over the middle, he might even make some catches in traffic — he scored against Indiana in 2009 on a play similar to this one, where he plucked the ball and secured it before being rocked at the goal line. But he’ll drop some passes that he shouldn’t and he will shy from contact at times.

There were two examples of that from Ohio State’s 2010 opener against Marshall. Posey scored twice in that game, so this all emphasizes his up-and-down performances. In the second quarter, on a deep ball from Pryor, Posey kept floating long, allowing Marshall’s safety to slip underneath him and bat a pass away. Then, to open the fourth, Posey sat down against zone coverage and Pryor hit him in the numbers — Posey flat-out dropped it.

Houston will hope for more consistency from Posey as an NFL rookie. Will the Texans get it?
