Ryans, a linebacker, averaged almost ten tackles a game and wound up as the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year, taking the heat off a certain defensive end we'll spare from naming. (Okay, it was Mario Williams, a.k.a. The Guy Picked Instead of Vince or Reggie.) This Alabama native truly was a shining star in what otherwise was a black hole of a season.
