Default Ryans hoping for another big year

Associated Press

HOUSTON - DeMeco Ryans thought he'd never get a handle on the defense when he arrived at Houston Texans training camp last year as a rookie.

He couldn't have been more wrong.

The linebacker made 13 tackles in his first game and never slowed down on his way to amassing a league-leading 126 solo tackles to earn Defensive Rookie of the Year honors.

Now the Texans can't wait to see what he'll do next.

"I feel a lot more comfortable now," he said. "In year one my head was spinning coming in. It was a lot tougher last year, but now I know the defense and I'm familiar with it so it's a lot easier."

His progress last season was helped by hours upon hours watching film. Ryans and fellow linebacker Morlon Greenwood would routinely be the last players in the stadium, staying hours after the others to pick apart offenses.

But his incessant film-watching wasn't always purely for the good of the team. Sometimes it just seemed more productive than the alternative.

"You leave here at 5 p.m. and get stuck in traffic, so you might as well be watching film," he joked.

And though they play different positions, Ryans said he's talked to first-round pick Amobi Okoye about how he can help the defensive tackle reach his goal of bringing the Defensive Rookie of the Year award back to Houston.

"I'll help him out in any way I can," Ryans said. "I know he's going to go out there and make plays and be a great player for us. I just tell him to keep doing what you're doing and get better every day."
