Forsyth said that he would not tell other scouts how strongly the Bills wanted to bring in Alonso, which worked because the club won the battle and picked the player with a high Draft position.
"He was one of those guys that would come up when you would run into other scouts on the road and they would ask who you have seen and where have you been? How is so and so playing? He was one of those guys I didn't want to talk about," he told the club's official website.
"You didn't even want to bring his name up because I knew he wasn't a high radar guy going into the fall. You definitely don't want to alert anybody else to what you're thinking about him. He's one of those guys who even though he was at one of the better programs you don't want to create any more buzz on a guy when you like him as much as we did."
Alonso made 159 combined tackles in his first season in the NFL.
