Draft 2013

Pick No.46

Selected By: Buffalo Bills

Round: 2

Pick (Overall): 14 (46)

Pick Analysis: Alonso led his Los Gatos (Calif.) high school team in tackles (150) and receiving (35-559, seven touchdowns) as a senior, joining the gaggle of Golden State recruits trekking to Eugene each year. Alonso redshirted in 2008, then played in the team's final 12 games the following year as a backup linebacker and special teams ace (16 total tackles). Upon his return from the suspensions, he started five of 12 games played in 2011, making 46 tackles, six for losses.




Alonso made his own difficulties early in his career at the University of Oregon. He was suspended for the entire 2010 season after a DUI arrest (while also rehabbing a torn right ACL suffered in the spring), then was forced to sit out the 2011 opener after being arrested the day after the team's spring game for breaking into someone else's apartment and passing out due to intoxication. He came back that season to eventually become a major contributor, including earning the Rose Bowl Defensive Player of the Game award in the team's win over Wisconsin (five tackles, 2.5 for loss, 1.5 sacks, interception).




In 2012, Alonso missed another game vs. Colorado, but this time it was due to a wrist injury. When he was on the field however, Alonso served as a major playmaker. Alonso recorded 81 tackles, of which 14 were for loss. Alonso also managed to snag four interceptions, and force two fumbles.
