Posey is suited to work outside the numbers downfield. However, Posey isn’t a speedster and can be injury-prone. Despite being 6-1 5/8 and 211 pounds, he needs bulk up to avoid the injury bug. Like most young wideouts, he needs to work on his route running and to maintain concentration, as well as not getting lost in traffic. He will also drop catchable balls and has some work to prove he belongs in the NFL.
The Texans have to upgrade the position alongside Andre Johnson, as Kevin Walter and Jacoby Jones were flops for the Texans and fantasy owners in 2011, as neither stepped up when Johnson went down. Despite his weaknesses, Posey has shown playmaking ability and is willing to work. He’s quick into his breaks and able to track the ball, adjust to it and make the catch.
Suspended for the first 10 games last season, his Combine workout helped his draft stock, but he’s nothing exceptional and there’s no guarantee he can win a starting job. We will need to watch him in training camp and the preseason before determining his true value as a rookie.
