Texans have selected Xavier Su'A-Filo from UCLA

With the first pick of the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans have selected UCLA offensive guard Xavier Su'A-Filo.

Matthew Fairburn of SB Nation totes how X's agility/movement skills are what makes him special:

Su'a-Filo's movement skills set him apart from other guards in this class. Not only did he have the athleticism to hold the edge at left tackle, but when he played guard, Su'a-Filo got to the next level with smooth, controlled movement. He has a lot of balance to his game and that helps him move efficiently across the line of scrimmage and within the second level of the defense. He has really quick feet and is able to move off his block in a hurry.
