Bills GM Doug Whaley said Friday that Alonso will be moved from inside linebacker to weak side linebacker this season, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said Whaley, "We're going to move Alonso outside. We think with his athletic ability and his speed and instincts, why limit him by having him take on those big guards, let's cover him up and let him run and hit."

Kiko Alonso: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Bills general manager Doug Whaley said that Alonso could be used as a weakside linebacker in the future, The Buffalo News reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Alonso won some offseason rookie honors as a middle linebacker, and there's no reason that his impressive skill set wouldn't translate to weakside 'backer. His relatively thin frame might actually be a better fit on the weak side, but the Bills probably won't want to tinker with a good thing. A position switch wouldn't necessarily hurt his IDP value, but it's hard to imagine that it could help.
Alonso was named the 2013 Defensive Rookie of the Year on Tuesday in voting conducted by the Professional Football Writers of America, BuffaloBills.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

We imagine Sheldon Richardson of the Jets was his closest competition, but in the end Alonso was on the field more and made quite an impression with his all-around ability. The second-rounder finished the campaign with an eye-popping 159 tackles to go with four interceptions and two sacks, and while his play slipped just a tad in the season's second half and on occasion he can tend to over-pursue a run play or two, he's everything the Bills could have hoped for to man their middle for years. Alonso doesn't seem to be that far off from where Carolina's Luke Kuechly was a year ago.
Coach Doug Marrone said that Alonso came out of Sunday's game fine, after heading into the contest as questionable with a knee issue, according to BuffaloBills.com.
