ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - The Buffalo Bills have selected Oregon linebacker Kristian `Kiko' Alonso with the 46th pick in the NFL draft.
Listed at 6-foot-3, 238 pounds, Alonso was a hard-hitting tackler over a three-year career. He played mostly at inside linebacker and finished with 143 tackles, six interceptions and 3 1/2 sacks in 36 games, including 17 starts.
Alonso had one interception and five tackles in being named the 2012 Rose Bowl defensive player of the game in a 45-38 win over Wisconsin.
He encountered off-the-field problems, and was suspended for the entire 2010 season due to separate alcohol-related offenses.
The Bills had concentrated on offense with their first two picks of the draft. They selected Florida State quarterback EJ Manuel 16th, and Southern California receiver Robert Woods with the 41st pick.
