Xavier Su’a-Filo – Offensive Guard/Center, UCLA, 6-3, 305 (5.18)
With as many holes the Packers have to fill on their team this offseason, offensive line may be the least of their concerns. However, I still believe there is plenty of room for their line to improve.
The Packers lack depth on the interior of their line. Sure, Josh Sitton and T.J. Lang are solid starters at guard, but Evan Dietrich-Smith may leave in free agency and there isn’t much at guard or center beyond the three starters.
The Packers could use a guy like Su’a-Filo. The former UCLA Bruin can play either guard or center, and is a great athlete that would provide some depth to the line. If EDS does not return this offseason then the Packers may not have a choice but to draft a center in an early round.
Overall, it’s not a great draft for centers, and there will be very few affordable centers on the free agent market that could come in and start immediately. So the Packers may decide to dip into the deep talent pool at guard and take a player like Su’a-Filo as their center for the future.
