    Listening.

    Talked about how excited he was to be a Houston Texan.

    Talked about the senior leadership at Alabama

    Will try to help whatever the team needs. Whatever helps win games. If we are winning, I am happy with that.

    He says he doesn't think he need to change his size. He is at 240--it is a nice weight for him. It is not about size, it is about heart.

    SEC gets you ready for the NFL because there are no weeks off in the SEC.

    It is going to be great playing behind Mario Williams.

    He is proud of the "Top 8" award for being a student/athlete. Division I,II,III--included.

    He helped out with the Hurricane Katrina folks by donating their per diem. Did fund raisers for the Red Cross. Playing and reading with kids. I am looking forward to helping kids out.

    www.demecoryans.net is the website.

    May 14th is when he gets to Houston.

    He has met Richard Smith, the DC.

    He was the team leader who was responsible for getting his teammates to donate their weekly allowance to the folks from Katrina who were relocated to U of Alb. He also made it a team rule that all players were to pick up dirty laundry off the lockerroom floor. He thought is was unfair to have the trainning staff pick up after players. He was known for donating more time to public service than anyone else on team while carring highest GPA.

    geez.. is this guy for real? If he is as great an LB as he is a person, then he is gonna be my favorite player on defense.

    A DeMeco Ryans jersey is gonna be my next purchase.

    Leadership. Smarts. And football smarts. Likes to hit people. What you like to see in your linebacker and something the Texans have needed.

    If you are feeling bad about anything, poke around his website for a bit. Make you feel pretty good about our pick. Folks in Alabama like Ryans like Texas fans like VY. Face of the team.

    Is it at all possible that this kid could see some time at safety? He sounds like an incredibly gifted athlete and a standup guy. Great pick.

    not fast enough for safety

    I think my new Texans mancrush is Demeco. Can't wait to see him this fall.

    Damn, sorry I missed this.

    Rather amazed that the national media didn't get a hold his story.

    Getting more and more excited about the draft as the days pass.

    this kid could very well be one of the best LB's that wasn't drafted in the first round...personally i thought he was better than bobby carpenter...but i was very happy to see him fall to us in round 2...can't wait to see this guy play again...by the way i was at the cotton bowl this year to see him against my texas tech red raiders and he tore us up...glad he's on our team now

    He can play all 3 LB spots in 4-3. Might be best suited for outside
