One national writer thinks Kiko is a Pro Bowl acquisition.

In a story for FoxSports.com, Cameron DaSilva named 11 players he predicted will earn their first Pro Bowl invitation in 2016, and Alonso was among his selections.

Alonso was one of two linebackers on the list, along with 2014 first overall pick Jadeveon Clowney of the Houston Texans.

After battling injuries the past two seasons, Alonso is hoping to recapture that rookie form with the Dolphins. DaSilva writes that he believes it will happen.

“Like Clowney, Alonso has dealt with a boatload of injuries in the NFL,” DaSilva wrote. “Yet, he still has the potential to be one of the best linebackers in the league in the Luke Kuechly mold. Now in Miami, his third team in four seasons, Alonso will star on the Dolphins defense ... if he can stay on the field. He only made one start for the Eagles in 2015, but prior to tearing his ACL in 2014, Alonso picked off four passes and had 159 tackles as a rookie in 2013. His coverage abilities have never been questioned, but his durability has — and he'll put that to rest in 2016.”

If he is 100% and can play at the level we saw his rookie year, we honestly got a steal.

But that's a big IF right now.

So, let's revisit our first round pick. We dropped from 8 to 13 and we got:

LB Kiko Alonzo
CB Byron Maxwell
LT/LT Laremy Tunsil

2.5 starters (Until Kiko can stay healthy then he counts .5).

Not bad at all.
