04/30/2012 - General manager Rick Smith believes in strength in numbers. He traded out of the second round. He sent his second- and seventh-round picks to Tampa Bay for third- and fourth-round selections. One reason the Texans liked Ohio State receiver DeVier Posey, who served two five-game suspensions as a senior, were the reports they got from his coaches and teammates. He attended practice and helped the younger receivers during his suspension. They were impressed with him at the Senior Bowl and Combine. If not for the suspensions, Posey would have been rated higher. "It's hard to say, but when you look at the talent and he compares very well with some of the guys that went to Indy (combine)," offensive coordinator Rick Dennison said. "You take the numbers he had as a sophomore and junior and move that into his senior year, he'd be up with some of the other guys that were taken earlier. I don't know exactly where, but we thought it was a talent at that spot in the third round, that we were comfortable taking." - The Sports Xchange
