What scouts are saying:
"Does not look the part and was miscast when forced to play left tackle for the Bruins, but Su'a-Filo is more effective than he is pretty. Projects best at left guard, where he has starter-caliber ability in a power scheme, though he is athletic enough to appeal to zone teams, too." (Nolan Nawrocki, NFL.com)
"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." (Rob Rang, CBSSports.com)
"Su'a-Filo is a well-rounded blocker in the run game and pass protection. He is very athletic and quick. After taking on defensive ends, Su'a-Filo is well equipped to go against speed-rushing defensive tackles." (WalterFootball.com)
