Strengths: Su’a-Filo has the quick feet and strong frame to be a positive pass blocker in the NFL. He shows great initial punch and was able to create creases for a surprising UCLA run game. He is very strong and has the tools to develop into a top tier guard.
Weaknesses: Su’a-Filo does not have the same experience as some of the other guard prospects, due to spending two years serving as a missionary. His technique has some issues, including a tendency to reach on blitzers. He occasionally has trouble sustaining blocks.
Bottom Line: Su’a-Filo is one of the higher upside prospects in this class. He is strong and has good frame. Su’a-Filo would benefit from some time on the bench in the NFL so he could work on technical issues. If he is able to address these concerns, Su’a-filo should be able to meaningfully contribute.
Projected Round: 2nd
Team he fits best on: Xavier Su’a-Filo fills a desperate Cleveland need to solidify the offensive line. Because the team is rebuilding, they do not need to worry about bringing Su’a-Filo along quickly.
