Our countdown of the Pac-12’s Top 25 players from the 2013 season continues.
You can review our 2013 preseason Top 25 here.
No. 12: Xavier Su'a-Filo, OL, UCLA
2013 numbers: Su'a-Filo was the anchor on a UCLA offensive line that helped the Bruins average 448.1 total yards, 36.9 points and 196.6 rushing yards per game.
Preseason ranking: No. 18
Making the case for Su'a-Filo: There's no greater honor for a lineman in the Pac-12 than the Morris Trophy, which is voted on by the league's starters on both the offensive and defensive lines. The Pac-12's defensive players voted Su'a-Filo as the conference's best offensive lineman after a season in which he was also named first-team All-Pac-12 for the second straight year. In addition, he was named UCLA's team MVP and declared for the NFL draft. ESPN Scouts Inc. ranks Su'a-Filo as the No. 5 offensive guard in the draft.
