DeVier Posey Rookie Diary: Ready to make plays

Posted Aug 29, 2012

In his latest Rookie Diary for HoustonTexans.com, wide receiver DeVier Posey looks ahead to the Texans' preseason finale and hopefully getting his first NFL catch.

DeVier Posey

Throughout the 2012 season, Texans rookie wide receiver DeVier Posey, a third-round draft pick from Ohio State, will give insight on his experiences in his Rookie Diary on HoustonTexans.com. To ask DeVier a question, leave a comment below or tweet at the Texans' official Twitter account (@HoustonTexans) with the hashtag #DPoDiary. Follow Posey on Twitter @DPo8.

I’m supposed to be playing a lot in our last preseason game on Thursday, so I just want to finally get out there and catch some passes, get a nice little rhythm going. I’m just looking forward to playing. I’m excited. I’m really excited.

For me, I look at it as a chance to show the coaches that you know what you’re doing and show the veterans that you know what you’re doing. Anytime you get an opportunity, you’ve got to just take advantage of it.

I‘m so ready to get my first catch, man. I’m beyond ready. I want one so bad. I have faith in the process of just learning and things happening for a reason. The way I feel now and the way I prepare – maybe it being partly because I don’t have a catch – I want to just keep working and keep working and keep working and keep working. There’s no secret to it: The more work you put in, the better you’ll be. I know that I’ve got a lot of good potential, but potential is just something that you aren’t yet, so I want to be able to be that at some point this year or whenever.

I’m feeling fine now after I strained a muscle in my leg last week. It just got tight on me. I was playing with it for a while and it just got too inflamed, so I just had to take some days, get some rest, get some of the swelling out of there and get some more blood flow pumped in there. It felt great to be back at practice on Monday. I didn’t feel like I was on the team last week. I say that jokingly; I just like to be around the guys, like to be there and be playing, like everybody else does.

It’s going to be fun to get back in front of the home crowd, to get out there and hear the Bulls on Parade nation cheering you on. I felt like it was kind of an away game two weeks ago because it was my first time being here and everything was new. It’s going to be routine playing here now, so I’m excited about it.

One of the biggest things I’ve learned in the preseason is hearing everything and making sure the small details are taken care of. In college, you can just wipe out the minor details and make a play, but here, minor details can win you or lose you a game. So I just have to make sure that I stay sharp with those through film study, studying the playbook and knowing the game plan inside and out.

We got to move out of the team hotel after training camp ended last week. Being able to be in your own place and be in your own bed, it’s amazing just to have that peace of mind to go home to. I’m getting adjusted to the city and trying to get my place together, and I like it so far. Now that you’re not living out of a bag and you’ve got a closet and your clothes are put away and your laundry is done, you feel a lot better coming in to work every day.

I appreciate all the fan support. Just keep on supporting us and supporting me, and we’ll get it done for you, and I’ll make sure I do my part, too.
