Offensive guard Xavier Su'a-Filo (6'4", 307 lbs)
The mature prospect from Pleasant Grove, Utah will be 23 years old when drafted. His advanced age is likely a big reason why Su'a-Filo entered the draft after his junior campaign.
Su'a-Filo will bring tons of versatility to any organization. Out of necessity, Su'a-Filo played as a left tackle for the majority of the 2013 season. In the NFL, he'll likely get slotted back inside at his natural guard position.
The AP second-team All-American is a very intelligent and cerebral football player. Notwithstanding, Su'a-Filo has very good feet and lateral quickness. "X" should be able to run a solid 40 and also display a good shuttle time.
His 25 reps in the bench press bested fellow prospects David Yankey, Cyrus Kouandjio, Ja'Wuan James, Jake Matthews and Marcus Martin, among others.
Su'a-Filo should be drafted as a second-round pick, with an outside shot at being drafted in the first round.
I expect "X" to have a long and prosperous career in the NFL. He's a high-character individual—a quality valued dearly by successful NFL franchises.
