BTW, I love the Short/Williams/Bailey draft. But Alonso is going to go to a Tampa 2 team by rd 3, rd 2 probably, Alonso is a perfect fit in the Tampa 2. I know all of the draft sites have Alonso in the 4th rd range. There's no way Alonso reahes the 27th pick of the 4th rd. IMHO
If you cant tell I love alonso and the way he plays the game. He's a 3 down LB.
Not sure I want a 36 year old Hampton on the roster as a starter. You could be right on Kiko but I think a suitable ILB can be there in 4th to compliment Cush, especially behind the Dline I identified.
