Even though DeVier Posey is entering his third NFL season, we haven't seen much from him the first two years. Posey was a third-round draft pick out of Ohio State who emerged late in the 2012 season and became the Texans’ third wide receiver before a ruptured Achilles tendon ended his season early. This year, however, Posey took advantage of Andre Johnson’s absence in the offseason program to work with the first team opposite DeAndre Hopkins. When Johnson returned for training camp, Posey continued to excel.
Currently buried on the depth chart for a team that's going to rely heavily on the starting receivers.
At this point, Posey's value is minimal; he'll need injuries to those ahead of him to play a significant role this season. Based on his strong effort this summer, however, Posey is worth watching if something does happen above him on the depth chart (like a Johnson injury).
