Bills LB Kiko Alonso was named to another award list after his impressive rookie season.
Alonso was named to the MMQB All-emerge team. Here’s what was written about the Bills LB.
Kiko Alonso, Bills
It might be a stretch to say that, come Christmas, this second-rounder from Oregon will be mentioned in Defensive Player of the Year discussions. Alonso is one of the few players whose football IQ and natural instincts pop out on film. His plus size and speed only augment the pop. And that pop is equally evident against the run (159 tackles) and pass (four interceptions), which is rare. Alonso took over as the Bills’ defensive signal-caller on Day 1 (also rare); he should have no trouble transitioning to new coordinator Jim Schwartz’s system.
