Many believe that Stanford's David Yankey is the best guard in this draft class. But the more I watch Su'a-Filo, the more I think he'll be the better player over time. Certain players just hit the game with a specific and effective nasty streak, and that's what he's got. In addition, Su'a-Filo has tremendous versatility, having played both tackle and guard for the Bruins through entire seasons. He could probably be a right tackle in the NFL, but I'd prefer him as a gap guard who could also play zone. He's a pure finisher who seems determined to play right to (and sometimes through) the whistle. On Saturday, Su'a-Filo ran an official 5.04 40, one of the fastest times of the day. He also impressed at the podium this week with his intelligence and confidence.
The story continues with some remarks from XSF (he models his game after New England's Logan Mankins) and Farrar concludes by saying that X is a "first-round talent."
