2013 NFL Draft: Kiko Alonso a name linked to Jaguars

Scott Olmos-US PRESSWIRE

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be looking for defensive upgrades all over the place that fit into their new hybrid scheme going forward. One Oregon defensive player the Jaguars have been linked to, aside from Dion Jordan, is linebacker Kiko Alonso.

The Jaguars were in attendance at the Oregon Pro Day, including linebacker coach Mark Duffner, who ran the linebacker drills according to Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union.

The 6'3, 238 pound Alonso is a big athlete at the linebacker position, which appears to be something the Jaguars will be looking for going forward. He clocked in at sub 4.7 range in the 40-yard dash and reportedly looked good in linebacker drills.

Alonso is an attacking, aggressive linebacker who was used a lot to blitz the inside on the Ducks defense and will likely fit as an inside linebacker in 3-4 or a 4-3 defense. He has dealt with a lot of injuries in his career and has a couple of arrests, but if the Jaguars do their due diligence and find him clear, he could be someone who could help in the new hybrid front.
