NFL Draft Player Spotlight- DeVier Posey
Byron Lambert, Rosterwatch.com
DeVier Posey, WR Ohio State
Weight: 210 lb
Brandon LaFell, Steve Breaston, Nate Burleson, Kevin Walter, Mohamed Massaquoi
Suspended for most of 2011 as part of the fallout from the OSU scandal, DeVier Posey played only the final 3 games of his senior year. Posey’s statistics in his sophmore and junior year were very consistent and are a more accurate indicator of his production. During those 2 years, DeVier averaged: 56 rec, 838 yds, 14.9 yd/rec, 7.5 td.
Posey has NFL size. He goes across and down the middle of the field without hesitation. Can also get down field. Takes a hit and holds on to the ball. Not fast but has a quick first step after the catch and tends to get up field quickly. Shows the ability to get YAC. Not a classic “snatcher” of the football but does demonstrate solid hands.
