Mock Draft Expert Analysis

  • Seattle Seahawks | #32
    Under head coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider, the Seahawks have pulled plenty of surprises in recent drafts but the loss of two starting left guard Paul McQuistan and right tackle Breno Giacomini in free agency could test their willingness to think outside of the box in 2014. Seattle won't reach to fill a need but if an aggressive, versatile blocker like Su'a-Filo is available, he'd make a lot of sense.
  • Seattle Seahawks | #32
    Offensive guard has been an inconsistent position on the Seattle roster. Su'a-Filo has experience at tackle and guard, but projects best inside and will be the top guard in this class for several teams.

Strengths Weaknesses

Player Overview

The most experienced and pro-ready member of UCLA's talented offensive line is Su'a-Filo, a veteran of 38 career starts who some believe may look to leave campus early for the NFL given the fact that he spent two years on a Mormon mission before joining the Bruins. (10/18/13)

Strengths: Powerfully-built. Very good initial quickness, hand placement and impressive upper body strength to gain the initial advantage on defenders. Due to his core strength and flexibility, Su'a-Filo anchors very well against bull-rushes and shows lateral agility and balance in pass pro. Perfect match in UCLA's drive-blocking scheme, but has the athleticism to fit in a zone-blocking scheme as well.

Weaknesses: Has a tendency to lose leverage on contact.

04/15/2014 - Five players who should be on the Denver Broncos' draft radar: OG Xavier Su'a-Filo, UCLA: Given Manning's age and the Broncos aggressive moves in free agency, Denver is clearly all-in to win now. That normally doesn't lend to drafting an offensive lineman in the first round. Su'a-Filo is far from the typical offensive lineman, however. He's a natural left guard who plays with athleticism and an anchor to handle both athleticism and power in the passing game. Given the loss of Zane Beadles to free agency and the retirement of Chris Kuper, the Broncos will almost surely be devoting extra attention to their offensive line in the draft, perhaps as early as the first round. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
