    I could envision DeAngelo Williams winning the ORoY .... He was quite possibly the most complete back in the past draft .

    As for Demeco Ryans , Its good to see some people outside the Texans fanbase give the guy some props . Considering he will start at a premium position I think he has a great chance at winning DRoY , No doubt he will put up numbers .... A lot of his success and failure will ride on the four guy's in front of him including Williams . The more attention Williams gets the better Ryans looks .

    Not much of a reach, considering that LBs have won the award in 6 of the past 7 seasons (Peppers in '02 being the exception).

    I personally like the fact that they are not even considering the second pick in the draft as ORoY.

    Best back out of the 06' draft has to be Lawrence Meroney, or how ever you spell it. That guys a beast, I think he will get ORoY. D-Wreck should for sure get DRoY!

    That's because they know he is all "hype" and playing with NO and that O-line, things ain't gonna be as "peaches and cream" as everyone else thought.:twocents:

    This is probably the most favorable article I have seen to date. What is going on in the word of sports? Are people actually realizing that the Texans will do well this year? Hmm...

    Exactly.

    Its going to be a rough year in Orleans. Sure hope they spend 5 or 6 picks next year on linemen, heh

    They should trade Reggie Bush for an entire line.... they better do it soon though while he is still worth that much. :bananasplit:

    hrm...wonder if Reggie Bush will be this years version of Ricky Williams :p

    And perhaps the Texans will turn out like the Eagles...picking McNabb over him, heh

    Man, I wish we could have traded up to get DeAngelo Williams. I like Lundy and Morency, but I think DeAngelo Williams is going to wind up being the best running back in this draft.

    We wouldn't have gotten Ryans if that would have happen. This is one of those toss ups, but I think overall we are better off. I know Vinny thinks so..

    Yeah, I think that not trading up has worked to our benefit. Because we would have only ended up getting 1 starter most likely, now we get to in Lundy and Ryans.

    If we had traded up to get Williams I couldn't have complained, and I can't complain how our draft ended up the way it has.
