Texans Rookies Get Some National Pub

SI.com's Peter King has selected his All-Rookie Team at the halfway point of the season, and it's a strange treat to see three (3) Texans featured on an All-Anything Team. Specifically, Mario Williams, DeMeco Ryans, and Owen Daniels all nabbed spots on King's rookie squad.

Houston fans know how solid these three guys have been, but they've been unheralded nationally, primarily because of the Texans' 2-6 record. Kudos to King for giving them their props. Based upon early returns, it's clear that the recent draft was far and away the best in franchise history. Is it coincidence that 2006 was the first draft that Casserly wasn't running the show? I think not.

The Texans have not exactly been a hot spot for free agents so far, and much of that is because the franchise has not had an identity or a name player to attract attention league wide. I think the defense as a whole, and especially Williams, Ryans and Robinson are quickly gaining recognition around the league as an up-and-coming unit. Such positive publicity is one of the first glimmers of optimism and praise that the franchise has earned in its brief existence, and one would have to think that it can only help as the Texans go forth trying to accumulate talent in future offseasons.
