Here is an article about DeMeco winning another award and some of the thoughts on the draft. http://www.montgomeryadvertiser.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060603/SPORTS/606030349/1002 The hard-hitting, modest-speaking University of Alabama linebacker was way up there on draft guru Mel Kiper's big board one day, then his draft stock was dropping the next day. It got kind of ludicrous for Ryans, who was named first-team All-America, the SEC's Defensive Player of the Year -- and now Alabama's Amateur Athlete of the Year, according to the Alabama Sports Writers Association. "I saw one deal that said my stock was dropping because I switched agents," Ryans said. "I was like, really, when did I do that? It's crazy how they try to predict so much, with mock draft this and that." When it came to reality, Ryans was taken by the Houston Texans:bananasplit: with the first pick of the second round and said, "It was a great feeling being the 33rd player taken in the draft."
