 Overview

  Over the past twenty years, seven receivers from The Ohio State University have cracked the first round of the NFL Draft. Their success at the next level has been mixed, at best, but Posey's size and downfield playmaking ability makes him the next potential Buckeye to hear his name called in the top 32 selections.

Posey played in 12 of Ohio State's 13 games as a true freshman, catching 11 passes for 117 yards before becoming the Buckeyes' leading receiver as a sophomore (60-828-8). He finished second to senior Dane Sanzenbacher in 2010 (53-848-7), but still earned honorable-mention All-Big 10 mention from league coaches.

Posey was one of the team's four potential top 50 picks (QB Terrelle Pryor, RB Dan Herron, OT Mike Adams) who will sit the first five games of the 2011 season for selling championship and general game memorabilia. Scouts already have enough film on Posey, however, to see how his vertical game will test NFL defenses. He'll need to pass the speed and hands tests before teams see him as an elite receiver, but even five strong games and a strong Combine could put him in that category.


 Analysis

  Positives: Good quickness off the line. Has size and quickness to get off NFL press. Generally reliable receiver capable of making difficult catches in traffic over the middle or one on one down the sideline. Adjusts to poor throws in any direction. Finds his way through traffic on crossing routes. Comes back to the ball to help his scrambling quarterback. Gives effort as a blocker on run plays.

Negatives: Inconsistent high-pointing passes. Allows too many throws into his body when facing the quarterback. Does not own elite speed. Freezes at times when trying to juke defenders in space. Walls off his man as a blocker, allowing them to shed and make the play outside.


 Career Notes

  Posey did not have the benefit of a redshirt season, and he has been an outstanding player for the Buckeyes in his four seasons. He closed out his career with 136 career receptions for 1,955 yards, numbers that rank sixth and eighth, respectively, all-time among Ohio State receivers. He also scored 18 receiving touchdowns to rank seventh on the all-time list. He is a four-year Varsity O letterwinner (2008-11) who played in 41 games, started 29 games and had a reception in each of his final 30 games played. He had six 100-yard receiving games, the eighth-most in school history. DeVier is on track to graduate in spring 2012 with his degree in communications.

 2011 Season

  Posey played in only Ohio State's final three games of 2011 and averaged 4.0 receptions per game (12 for 162 yards) with touchdown grabs of 43 yards vs. Michigan and 5 yards vs. Florida. He was the best receiver on the field in his three games in 2011 with four receptions for 66 yards vs. Penn State, three for 58 yards vs. Michigan and five for 38 yards vs. Florida.

 Draft Scout Player News
12/26/13 - --WR DeVier Posey (ankle) didn't participate in practice and won't play at Tennessee.
12/24/13 - WR DeVier Posey is expected to miss his third consecutive game because of a high ankle sprain.
12/17/13 - WR DeVier Posey left the Indianapolis game with a high ankle sprain and may not be able to play against Denver.
09/02/13 - WR DeVier Posey played for the first time since suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon in the playoff loss to New England. He caught two passes for 18 yards in the last preseason game against Dallas. He'll be brought along slowly in regular season.
08/18/13 - WR DeVier Posey will be activated from PUP Monday and should play against New Orleans, according to coach Gary Kubiak. Posey was been sidelined since undergoing surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon, an injury he suffered in the playoff loss at New England. "It would be up there with me coming back from my suspension," Posey said about being suspended by the NCAA while playing at Ohio State. "It would probably mean a lot more than that, just because I had to dig deep. I had to really pull myself out of this injury." Just about everybody but Posey thought he'd begin regular season on PUP and be forced to miss at least the first six weeks. "He's worked extremely hard, and he's been running a lot of routes," Kubiak said. "It looks like we're very close to pulling him off PUP, and, hopefully, he's back working. The thought process in the offseason was it probably wasn't going to happen this early, but it sure looks like it's got a chance. That would be a huge boost to our team."
