Default DeMeco finally gets some Chronicle coverage !

"Once rookie linebacker DeMeco Ryans proved he could grasp the Texans' defensive system quickly, the coaches decided to take advantage.
Training camp is still more than a month away, but Ryans is learning nearly every linebacker position and vying for a starting job. Instead of being weighed down by the responsibilities, the 21-year-old is dealing with them just like he did everything in college.

snippet:
Ryans is currently sitting behind Morlon Greenwood at outside linebacker and Wali Rainer in the middle.

"We think he has a bright, bright future," Smith said. "And he's a young person that we feel can come in here and compete for a starting position on this team. But he's got to earn that spot. And that's what we're trying to get accomplished right now. We're trying to develop him into a starter. He brings youth, speed and athletic ability to the position.

*************************

I can't wait to see the day that he gets his first start as I trust that will be the first of many in a long and great career. Kubiak and staff have frequently been on point in their collective messaging where people earn their position not deserve. I friggin love it.

I heard a lot about how Winston was a steal in the 3rd and I agree. But I also think Ryans was a steal in the 2nd rd.

Some of what I read before and after the draft said that DeMeco and Winston could have gone in the 1st round. They could both end up being huge steals for us depending on how things go.

One editorial note: Demeco is 6' 1" not 6' 4" as listed in the article. Can't really blame Megan though as she appears to have caught the glitch from the Texans' roster.

I've heard that consistently. The Texans were floored when Ryans was there in the 2nd. and absolutely stunned when Winston was there in the 3rd. I think Ryans just might end up as this generations Mike singletary. Maybe Winston or Wand can be our version of Orlando Pace....

DeMec - He was my favorite player at Bama the last 2 years and I was very happy to see him picked up by the Texans. I truly think he will be a great player for this team for many years to come and like others said a Pro-bowler type guy - blue-collar hard working/learning type player. A real class act and a great instinct player who put plenty of time in the books to make him an all-american LB and winner of many awards on and off the field. Been compared to many of the great LB's to come out and was close to several of Derrick Thomas records at Bama.

I will be looking to get my jersey as soon as they start releasing em. Really looking forward to seeing him light a fire in our D and bring the house every play like he did @ Bama where he was a 1-2 contender with AJ Hawk for pretty much every LB award. If he has the kind of year I think/coaches are seeing he will be a contender for DROY for sure and will bring some solid play to our LB's for a change.

I know everybody was really hyped on Mario esp w/the draft and bush-young, but honestly my fav pick of our draft was DeMec. I really think he will be a Great player for the Texans and I cant wait to see him live playing for our home team at TC and this season.

Considering the our defensive woes last year, he is a welcome sight this year. I hope he can get to Manning sometime this yaer.

mannerd he appeared. And it may have been years since he played, but he still looked fit and well conditioned, as if he could have suited-up that day.
I dunno....Singletary was known as a guy who was not overly impressive physically, and almsot bland in demeanor who was a fiery and inspirational leader on the field who became a Hall-of-Famer. Hey, you never know.

I'm excited for the 1st time the Texans actually had an excellent draft in a prospect rich draft, you have to strike when the iron is hot and DeMeco will be a cornerstone to the Texans future regardless where he lines up, he will get after it & make things happen

Who is Wali Rainer and where is Sam Cowart or what ever his last name was. Is he third on the depth for middle. Of the three Iwould rather see ryans there.

I cannot speak to the depth chart as others here have more insight.
