The newest Houston Texan. - Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

With the first pick in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans have added Xavier Su'a-Filo to the team. Check out the reaction of Texans fans to the pick on Battle Red Blog.

Your Houston Texans have added a new player to their roster with the first pick in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft, and Chester Pitts has informed us that player's name is Xavier Su'a-Filo (OG--UCLA).

Earlier today, Brett discussed the possibility of the Texans drafting Su'a-Filo here:

I honestly did not expect Xavier Su’a-Filo to even be available in the second round, so this is a nice surprise for me. The former Bruin would be an immediate plug-and-play option at left guard next to Duane Brown, and I think he would be a critical component to the development of whatever quarterback(s) the Texans acquire in the next two days. The best gift a young passer can get is a clean pocket, and Su’a-Filo can give it to him.

Personally, I'm ecstatic with the pick. There wasn't a QB I was comfortable taking at 2.1, and I love that the Texans are addressing the offensive line early. Left guard was a glaring problem last year, and Xavier Su'a-Filo should come in with a real shot to start immediately. I'm a fan of this move.

What's your immediate reaction to the selection?
