    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?

    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.

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

    He was a part of the Tattoo scandal, so who cares.

    He is a solid receiver. Doesn't get a lot of separation but has GREAT hands, kinda' the opposite of Jacoby Jones.

    From your resident Buckeye.

    I just don't get why we traded back and think posey would have been there later....

    So far this draft has been really confusing.

    1st round pick spent on depth, and now our 2nd pick being spent on a potential #4? Yikes.

    Take a look at his sophomore and junior year. He was already productive player and probably produces even more numbers if he was playing his senior year.:strangle:

    Posey good size and movement. Likely a possession WR in NFL although deceptive vertical speed with free access. 3rd rd picks have questions.

    Is that you want? Seriously? Is that want you really are hoping for?

    And he didn't have a QB.

    Very disappointed. We had both Randle and Sanu for the taking in the 2nd. Two guys with very high ceilings but some low floors, and we trade back to get Posey?!?!?!? What?!?!?

    I guess he was a steal from the stats.
