Owen Daniels, TE, Texans -- Houston had options at tight end last year, so it was a surprise when a rookie, Daniels, came on to start 12 games and score five touchdowns (on 34 catches for 352 yards). He should continue to be a major factor in the Texans passing attack.

DeMeco Ryans, LB, Texans -- As the less-celebrated defensive rookie on the Texans (behind first-overall pick Mario Williams), Ryans did not play second fiddle to anyone in 2006, leading the NFL in tackles with 125. It wasn't a fluke either. Ryans proved adept at the mundane chore of filling lanes, but he also made his share of big plays with 3 1/2 sacks, a forced fumble and an interception.

Always good to see our guys getting their due.

Awesome to hear. These two deserve their credit and performed phenomenally last year.

Wasnt Ryans a ProBowl Alt? As a rookie MLB I dont see how that could possibly be underrated. Being as they only send what 2 MLBs per Conf.

But yeah the man is pure fire.

They need to redo the pro-bowl designations. Ryans was the 1st alternate but MLB's tend to show up so no pro-bowl credit. VY was like the 6th alternate QB but has a pro-bowl on his resume after Manning, Brady, etc. dropped out.

Not a knock on Young, just an observation.
