DeVier Posey WR Ohio State #8 Ht: 6’2″

Wt: 209

  Strengths: Good height and overall size. Impressive hands; capable of making the tough catch. Plucks the ball from the air at its highest point when possible. Tough runner after the catch; can make some guys miss and is willing to lower his shoulder into defenders. Does a great job adjusting to the ball in the air. Strong fundamentals; runs crisp routes. After missing most of 2011 season due to suspension, stepped in for final two games and was in midseason form – which shows he put in the time an effort to stay sharp. Weaknesses: Suspended for majority of 2011 season for taking improper benefits. Not very explosive off the line of scrimmage; takes time to get up to full speed. Solid in nearly all aspects of the game, but not elite anywhere. Blocking could improve; has the size and strength to more effective than he was in college. Comments: Posey was a forgotten prospect for much of the 2011 regular season, and was expected to take a significant step backwards due to his time missed. However, his strong performance down the stretch was impressive, and should put him back in the 2nd or 3rd round discussion for most teams. He lacks elite size or speed, which definitely limits his upside, but he has all the skills necessary to be an effective starter in the NFL. Videos: 2010 vs Marshall, Miami, Arkansas
