2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Xavier Su'a-Filo, OL , UCLA

At 24 years old, Su'a-Filo is making a somewhat late entrance into the NFL due to taking a two year mission with the Mormon Church a few years back. This powerful interior lineman is an ideal prospect and is widely considered the top option for his position.

Below average length. Short arms. Very flexible lower body and powerful. Can anchor, absorb contact and redirect defenders out of the play. Rarely gets off balance or lunges after his opponent. Uses hands very well. Gets ahold of someone and really puts his weight into them. Surprising lateral movement and agility. Experienced at tackle, but will most certainly play guard in the NFL.

Leverage is adequate when run-blocking. Lowers to out-will and out-muscle his man. Moves well in zone schemes. Solid in-line blocker. Hand placement still needs work. Aggressive style of play. Stays nasty to the whistle. Finishes plays.

Su'a-Filo projects as an early second round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
