The rookie offensive lineman has shown he can learn multiple positions and play them effectively.
“I think it is hard for a rookie to come in on the interior of the offensive line and get used to that right away,” O’Brien said. “You know, everybody is stronger, everybody is quicker. There is a guy there that has improved. He’s played tackle, he’s played guard and he’s done some quarterback-center exchange in the pre practice. He’s a guy that is doing a lot and is getting better every day.”
“I think that the one thing that helps us with him is he is able to play center," O'Brien said. "When you learn center, you really learn all the calls and the blocking assignments for the whole line because you are the captain of the ship along with the quarterback. That is a good thing for him.”
Su’a-Filo played left tackle and guard in Saturday’s preseason game at Arizona.
