Biography: Three-year starter who finished with 12 receptions/162 yards/2 TDs as a senior. Played in just three games last year after serving a suspension for his participation in the Ohio State tattoo scandal. Junior totals included 53/848/7 after he had 60/828/8 as a sophomore.
Positives: Physically gifted receiver who's flashed big-time ability throughout his career. Solid route runner who quickly gets into breaks and stays low on exit. Sells routes, effectively works back into the clearing of the defense and makes himself an available target. Gets vertical in a crowd and comes down with the ball. Makes a lot of athletic receptions. Effectively uses his frame to shield away defenders and protect the ball. Easily makes downfield, over-the-shoulder catches, looking the pass into his hands. Immediately transitions from making the catch to running after the reception.
Negatives: Lacks a quick release off the line into pass routes. Does not show a sense of timing. Not a true downfield threat.
Analysis: Posey was a consistent performer at Ohio State before being sidelined by a suspension most of last year. Though unpolished in many areas, he offers enough upside to develop into a second wideout on a roster.
