2014 NFL Draft: Houston Texans Sign Second Round Pick Xavier Su'a-Filo

The signing of guard Xavier Su'a-Filo caps off a rare busy news day for football in June. After over a month of waiting, Rick Smith has at long last signed the entire Texans rookie draft class.

That's a lot of man.

Take it away, Mark Berman...

Su’a-Filo was finally back in a Texans uniform today as he took the last month off to finish his degree at UCLA. After graduating on the 13th, the former Bruin is now free to commit to mauling defensive linemen full time. However, earning that coveted starting spot will not come without overcoming some tough obstacles.

The left guard competition and development of "XSF" should be one of the big storylines of training camp. If the Texans’ offensive line can regain its elite 2011 form, the offense should have no problem putting up points…with or without Andre Johnson.
