DeVier Posey, WR, Ohio State

DeVier Posey is fast receiver that is a very raw route runner who needs to show more precision and snap to his game. He has the right height but is still a bit thin throughout. He can be jammed or re-routed off the line and doesn't show enough determination to fight through press coverage. When entering his breaks, he is rough around the corners and doesn't explode to create separation. He needs to show more discipline in his routes and scouts will certainly see this as a big negative. There is also some upside since he hasn't learned to consistently play with this type of discipline; if he does, it will greatly improve his game.

He can stretch the field and get behind defenders at times. He follows the football in the air well and does a nice job to be in position to make the catch. Posey flashes nice body control while in the air and can make the acrobatic catch. But again, discipline is a factor and doesn't necessarily bring the same level of concentration every play or even every game.

There is some upside here which could push his stock up slightly for some teams. The bottom line is that while Posey does have some natural gifts, there doesn't seem to be a workmanlike approach (which is something he'll really need to excel in the NFL). Off the field concerns may push him a bit further into the middle rounds.
