The best part is even if he has a good combine he grades out around the fourth round. I would love for the Bengals to go after Posey. The Bengals need a #2 reciever, and I think he could be that guy. He is a local guy, and I think that could be a minor draw for fans. What do you guys think?
Posey, great speed? I don't see that, maybe 4.48 to 4.52ish which is fine but nothing to rave about. I'm not sure someone who made the decisions he made would be considered a positive in terms of a bump in attendance either. He was a nice WR at OSU but not so much so that people are gonna go out of their way to see him. I wouldn't hate him being drafted in the 4th but I'd think/hope we could do better there in the draft and at the position in general. If they are in the market for a #2 come draft time (I doubt it I think Simpson will get re-signed or Manningham will be the guy) I suspect you would see someone drafted much sooner, no later than the 2nd but most likely with their 2nd 1st (Floyd or Wright would likely be a target then IMO).
Posey would be a good candidate to replace Caldwell who unless he takes a miniscule contract is probably going bye-bye.
