Yea, my main worry as a fan is he's so short that he'll never be able to catch balls against tall NFL defenders.

Compared to Posey (measured 6'2", at the Combine....but shrunk to 6'1" by the time he reached the Texans), this is the highest I've seen Jacoby (measured 6'2 5/8" at the Combine......but grew to 6'3" by the time he reached the Texans) jump. Try finding anything that trumps him bumping butt with AJ........including the latter celebration that managed to booger up his knee for a while.

At 230 lbs AJ had a 41" vertical. JJ had a 34" at 210 lbs.

In general , CB's are shorter, quicker guy's .... not a whole lot of "Big corners"

And that pic shows good ability to get up and go get it ....

I didn't say he looked short, I said small.

At 6'1" 210, he should look pretty stout. I'm thinking he's probably taller than 6'1" or weighs less than 210.



If this guy is 6'1" he looks like he's 185-190 tops.

We will just trust your eyes over the scales measured by professionals at the combine. his pro day and the Houston Texans.

Yeah he does look kind of small to be 210...Andre is about 220-230ish? And he seems to be much bigger...

I haven't seen them side by side, so maybe it's just the picture or maybe he's not really 210....I agree that that in that picture he looks like he's at or just under 200...

I'm 6' 0" and weighed 210 in college. I was pretty ripped even without lifting weights (yeah, metabolism was awesome back in the day). I was a steer wrestler, so I had a lot of exercise throwing steers to the ground both running alongside them as they exited the chute AND off a horse going 40 mph.

I am still 6' 0" but weight 230 now, 225 on a good day.

Posey, if he's 6' 1" and weighs 190'ish...he's tall/big enough to play against the vast majority of CB2's or nickel backs in the NFL. For what it's worth, I have never thought he was too small. Seemed to be about Kevin Walter stature to me.

I know it's just my eyes, & not a calibrated scale or anything that accurate.

But even here. Walter is 2" taller, 7 pounds heavier.... but looks thicker.

Posey must have some dense bones, but that doesn't explain his vertical leaping ability.

EDIT
Actually in this picture, he doesn't look 6'1"

Look at the definition of his calf muscles in the large photo. Look like they could do some damage. But, most people don't realize that calf muscles don't add that much to a player's ability to jump high. First of all, explosive high vertical jump is very commonly seen in "skinny" players. They have less body fat to move. The high vertical jumpers tend to be very blessed genetically with some common characteristics..........long Achilles tendons (look again at Posey's large pic above), long thighs, high muscle attachments (all of the aforementioned which lead to the greatest efficiency of transfer of energy)............. with coordination of very strong (not necessarily bulked) quad muscles, followed by hamstrings, glutes and, lastly, calf muscles.
