Troy Smith had Ted Ginn Jr.
Terrelle Pryor had DeVier Posey.
Braxton Miller has Devin Smith.
The first four all played on Sundays at one point or another. One took home a Heisman. Another was considered a Heisman candidate. Another still set the BCS Championship record for longest kickoff return for a Touchdown then parlayed that into NFL return records as well. Two have yet...
Jim Tressel is a man who did everything he could for The Ohio State University; during his years as head coach he embodied what it meant to be a Buckeye and was someone Buckeye Nation was proud to have on the sidelines. With him as head coach, the football team won the Nation Championship and six conference titles while he took the team to the post season each and every year....
Ohio State is on probation for NCAA violations stemming from the 2010 tattoo-and-memorabilia scandal. The pay-to-play fiasco that ended up costing Jim Tressel his job, disgraced Terrelle Pryor and led to the suspension of Boom Herron and Devier Posey.
The Buckeyes’ are ineligible for a bowl this college football season. This morning, Ohio State released a statement by Athletic...
Suspended in December 2010, in part for accepting tattoos that were deemed by the NCAA to be an impermissible benefit, a quintet of Ohio State players each still have the body markings that contributed to the downfall of coach Jim Tressel. Seventeen months later, though, the former Buckeyes' players aren't exactly marked indelibly for life. "There's still a chance...

The three-day extravaganza known as the 2012 NFL Draft concluded on Saturday with four former Ohio State players being selected among the 253 during the seven rounds while three others signed as undrafted free agents following the draft.
Another year, another weekend of filtering through angry tweets and knee-jerk reactions from Texans fans.
The way that I’ve noticed the past few years is that there are two types of fan reactions in this base’ either they’re going to hate the picks if it isn’t a skill position, or they’re going to go out of their way to say they trust the Texans front office to make the...

HOUSTON (AP) -- The Houston Texans added more depth to their offensive line on Saturday, taking Georgia center Ben Jones with their first fourth-round pick.
The 6-foot-2, 300-pound Jones should back up Chris Myers, who re-signed with the Texans in free agency.
The Texans finished 10-6 last season and won their first AFC South title to earn the...
According to ESPN reporter Adam Schefter, the Houston Texans are going to attempt to trade WR/KR Jacoby Jones. Houston acquired Ohio State WR/KR DeVier Posey in the third-round of the 2012 NFL Draft on Friday. That move now makes Jones expendable.
Schefter reports on Twitter, that Houston should start fielding offers for the veteran receiver on Saturday as the final four rounds of...
HOUSTON These things are rarely straightforward. No number of mock drafts or educated guesses could prepare even the most ardent Texans fans for the maneuvers executed on Day 2 of the NFL Draft.
After making the obvious play in the first round Thursday in selecting Illinois defensive end Whitney Mercilus 26th overall, the Texans traded out of the second round on Friday, acquiring...
The Houston Texans are reportedly trying to trade receiver/returner Jacoby Jones after drafting Ohio State receiver DeVier Posey with the 68th overall pick.
Jones, 27, hasn't produced much on the field with only 512 yards receiving last season and two touchdowns.
It will be difficult for the Texans to make a trade as Jones has $3 million base salary.
The Texans may get a seventh...
TEXANS PROFILE: DEVIER POSEY
In the second round the Houston Texans traded back with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for their third round pick at 68 and also acquiring a third fourth rounder at 126. The Houston Texans need a wide receiver badly and even though Texans fans liked the idea of trading back and acquiring more picks it becomes apparent that wide receiver isn’t as important...
Mike Adams and DeVier Posey learned where they will begin their professional football careers as the former Buckeyes heard their names called in the second and third round, respectively, of the NFL draft on Friday night.
HOUSTON (AP) -- The Houston Texans have picked Ohio State receiver DeVier Posey in the third round of the NFL draft after trading out of the second round.
The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Posey caught only 12 passes for 162 yards and two touchdowns last year. He served two five-game suspensions for taking improper benefits, including cash and tattoos for signed memorabilia. But he could...
Everybody knows that the first round picks in every Draft are the most talked about and get the most attention, but there are hundreds of examples of late round picks that have been very good, Pro Bowlers, or Hall of Fame NFL Players ( Tom Brady Round 6, Matt Birk Round 6, Shannon Sharpe Round 7 and Donald Driver Round 7) Just to name a few.
Every year it seems that there...
Former Ohio State wide receiver DeVier Posey had some ups and downs during Senior Bowl practice and during the NFL combine, but the Cincinnati native was happy to be back at Ohio State for Pro Day. He showed off his pass-catching skills at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.
The starting Strong Safety, Free Safety, Outside Linebacker, and Wide Receiver positions MUST be addressed. The Jets must also add Inside Linebacker, Quarterback, Running back, Tight End, and O-line help; for depth and injury.

While outside linebacker is arguably a bigger NEED for the Jets, the outside linebacking positions are much...
UC’s Isaiah Pead had the fifth-fastest time among running backs in the 40 during Sunday’s workouts at the NFL Scouting Combine with an official time of 4.47 seconds. Former LaSalle standout and Ohio State receiver DeVier Posey was in the middle of the pack in his position group at 4.50 seconds.
With his 40 time, that means it is unlikely Pead will run during UC’s pro day on...
Ohio State wide receiver DeVier Posey talks about his career at Ohio State, the combine, and more inside.

MOBILE, Alabama - Ohio State wide receiver DeVier Posey was busy bouncing from couch to couch, from interview to interview at the official Senior Bowl hotel Tuesday night when a scout from an NFL team within easy driving distance of Columbus cut him off in mid stride, extended his hand and introduced himself.

DeVier Posey WR Ohio State #8
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...
MOBILE, Alabama - Senior Bowl practices begin Monday afternoon, and listed below are five players who -- before stepping foot on to the Senior Bowl practice fields -- figure as most intriguing to the Bengals' coaches and scouts in attendance based on the team's needs and the respective players' college resumes.
