Keiko Alonzo yet other higher rated guys on the board looks like a panic and a reach.   Hope we get a TEin the third

Never heard of him either! Lets hope this isn't another Tank Carder pick who is cut. Maybe the Dansby visit isn't going so well.

You're in AZ and you have not heard of Alonso?

He's better than Tank... ;)

Kiko is a good player - just behavioral problems. Marrone better keep him in line.

Well, so much for Nix's preference for guys from the South.  That's two straight from the PAC 12.

Like the way he plays. Hope the DUI was a college thing. Breaking into and sleeping in someone else's place? Nice.

Flipping back and forth between coverages fwiw both mcshay and mayock loved this kid.  Mayocks quote "the biggest knock is that sometimes he seeks contact instead of making the play."

I can live with that weakness!

He should be an ILB.  

Wonder what this means for Shep or Dansby?

Alonso?  A panic move after Minter came off the board?

SI.com has Kiko rated higher than Minter, for what it's worth.

I think that Chris Brown says he projects as an outside guy. Can probably play both. I think he played at 238 but not sure.

It was neither panic nor reach...

I like Alonso more, I mean a lot more than Te'o...

Alonso is a legit player with excellent size for his position, and I think he's going to be a force for Pettine on the inside..If anything Alonso needs to dial it back a bit...He's an animal... B-)

In all fairness it was probably stumbling in and passing out on the floor
