3. Kiko Alonso
The latest linebacker to bite the injury bug, Alonso is one of the most unheralded defensive players in the NFL. Alonso was the runner-up for the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year away after recording 159 tackles, 2.0 sacks, and 4.0 interceptions.
The up-and-coming Buffalo Bills may fall a step short of truly improving without their weak-side linebacker in the mix.
