Former Ducks LB A Rookie Sensation With Bills

By Jim McCoy Wed 2nd October SportsBuffalo BillsKiko AlonsoNFLOregon Ducks
Quiet and introverted, Buffalo Bills rookie linebacker Kiko Alonso pays little attention to the hype he's starting to generate. National TV interviews and a trend on Twitter, titled the "LegendOfKikoAlonso," mean very little to the second-round draft pick out of Oregon. Where many see potential, Alonso sees room for improvement, while looking ahead to Buffalo (2-2) playing at Cleveland (2-2) on Thursday night. After four games, Alonso is tied for the NFL lead with four interceptions, to go with one sack, a forced fumble and recovered fumble. His 32 tackles are tops in Buffalo and among league rookies. And with two interceptions in a 23-20 win over Baltimore on Sunday, Alonso became the league's first rookie linebacker since Al Richardson in 1980 to have an interception in three straight games.
