Houston Texans Select DeVier Posey, WR, Ohio State 2012 NFL Draft Grade


With the 68th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans have selected DeVier Posey, WR, Ohio State

Here is our report on Posey:

Posey is one of the better big play wide receivers in the country, but like the last couple of guys on this list, he is also in for a five game suspension for the situation that has happened in Columbus. That is unfortunate, because with a big senior season, Posey had a chance to really be an asset to the Ohio State passing game, and he still has that chance, he will just have to wait until mid-season to do it. Posey is a big receiver with good hands and speed. He runs track for Ohio State, or has run track for them, and is a threat to score every time he touches the ball. One of the top senior receivers in this class, he has caught 113 passes over the last couple of years for 1,676 yards and 15 touchdowns. Big play guy who could easily be a second round pick in next year’s draft.

 

Pick Grade: C+

Posey is a solid player but I think he’s a poor value in the third round. He has some off-field concerns and isn’t an elite receiver, but the Texans could make him into a star opposite Andre Johnson.
