Too Deep Zone: All-Rookie Team

The first annual Too Deep Zone All-Rookie Team is built for smashmouth football. The linebackers are outstanding, the secondary is solid, and the running back can move the chains. There's even depth at punter. Just don't expect a great passing attack.

And the Texans-Ravens matchup could very easily be renamed the Leinart/Bush Bowl. All that's missing is cousin Eddie and his dickie.
