Xavier Su’a-Filo lays out his upcoming NFL draft decision

Junior offensive lineman Xavier Su’a-Filo spoke recently about whether or not he will enter the 2014 NFL draft. The biggest factor in his decision will be his grade evaluation, but said he didn’t know a cutoff point that would push him one way or the other. His turning 23 in January, the age of many fifth-year seniors, will also affect his decision; his two-year LDS mission had pushed back his eligibility clock, and could prompt him to leave early in hopes of a longer career.

Su’a-Filo could be an eventual first-rounder at guard, but likely needs to add more strength before NFL franchises see fit to pick him that high.
