Dec 31, 2013; El Paso, TX, USA; UCLA Bruins guard Xavier Su
Add another name onto the possibilities for the Chargers in the first round. We know the team could hit up a corner, a nose tackle or a receiver for the first spot. We can add an offensive guard onto the list for the team at pick 25.
The Chargers worked out UCLA OG Xavier Su’a Filo and he is a projected first round draft pick. Here is a pic coach Joe D. working out Su’a-Filo (via Reddit):
It even looks like the Chargers were testing him out at center. He is an offensive guard that has the versatility to play all along the offensive line. If he were added onto the roster, we would have some nice pieces on that offensive line for the future. D.J. Fluker and Su’a-Filo would be a couple of guys that would beat down on some teams and would give the running game some huge holes to run through. They would give Philip Rivers some time to get the ball out to his skill players. All things would work smoothly with an offensive line like that.
Su’a-Filo will be a name that will be watched in the first round. Building up the offensive line is always a good thing. We saw the crap that Philip had to go through when he had defenders in his lap all day long and it is all kinds of bad. Build up that wall and let the franchise take care of business in the pocket.
