FWIW, on Posey.

Some folks are acting as though Posey in camp was like Trindon Holliday year one or something.

Not like that at all. He looked like he belonged out there. /Made a really nice catch last day of minicamp, IIRC. Bomb where it looked like he was overthrown.

Kubiak sees OTAs/minicamp as a way to get young players up to speed so they can compete with the vets in training camp. In his TD Club luncheon, Kubiak basically said he's pushing the rookies very hard because he is going to need some of them to contribute quickly due to departing players.

I also think that some comments are pumping the brakes some on the expectation by some that Posey can just jump in and supplant Walter.

I think for the all the rookies he wants them to be prepared for real camp. And not get some entitled big head sort of thing going on.

they identified finding Mario's replacement a higher priority (Whitney Mercilus). regarding Posey, he is more polished & can run complete route tree.

Yeah, I don't expect Posey (and wouldn't any other drafted 2012 WR) to be able to jump right into our offense. Training camp/preseason will tell the tale.

Default Re: 3rd Round DeVier Posey WR Ohio State

I'm sold on Posey. Everything I read, despite Kubiak's deflective criticisms that aren't really criticisms, seems to point me in the direction of confidence in Posey.

He can run routes properly (Jacoby couldn't), he has great hands (Jacoby didn't), and he has the stride to make up ground and go get passes that are maybe initially out of his reach. Also, there has been NO off-the-field news about this guy--He's being a real pro about it all.

All in all, I think it's AJ, Walter, Jean, and Posey. Keshawn Martin as WR5 and return man. Kubiak is a seniority type of coach, he's going to have Jean ahead of Posey out of traditional respect for the code.

I don't think KW is on the outs or anything, but Jean and Posey are going to push KW for that WR2 spot this year...and the push will be greater in 2013 if KW is still around by then. And don't anybody get undies in a bunch about this, I'm just saying that Jean and Posey have a real shot at supplanting KW if they perform very well in 2012. As long as KW keeps taking pay cuts, he'll have a spot on this team even if it's at WR3 or WR4.

Default Re: 3rd Round DeVier Posey WR Ohio State

I think the WR competition is very wide open.

It would not surprise for the Texans to bring a vet in for camp too.

Texans have mixed feelings on that. Bring a vet in, then you may be not developing your young players. Don't bring a vet in, and you may get totally hosed finding out that the game is too big for your rookies.

Hill wouldn't have been in the conversation , IMO , if he didn't run a 4.3 . Posey wouldn't have been there , IMO , if he would have played his senior year .

Stephen hill went 43rd overall, the Texans didnt have a pick until #58 (which they traded to TB). by no means did the Texans pass on hill to draft posey..

They didn't pass up Stephen Hill for Posey, they passed up Stephen Hill for Whitney Mercilus, if anything...

Regardless, Posey can be a better NFL receiver than Hill...
