Chris Myers exchanges texts with Su’a-Filo

Posted May 13, 2014

Veteran center Chris Myers welcomed the Texans newest offensive lineman, Xavier Su’a-Filo, after he was drafted Friday night.

Chris Myers welcomed the Texans newest offensive lineman, Xavier Su’a-Filo, to Houston after he was drafted Friday night.

“I actually texted back and forth with him after we drafted him, just kind of a welcome to Houston and stuff,” Myers said Monday during the 12th Annual Houston Texans Charity Golf Classic. “I think he’s going to be a great addition to our line, wherever he ends up playing. A physical player like that, it’s going to be a lot of fun seeing him compete in training camp.”

Drafted with the first pick in the second round, the UCLA lineman “one of the most versatile players in the draft,” according to general manager and executive vice president Rick Smith. Su’a-Filo, who has played left guard, right guard, and left tackle, will compete for a starting spot at guard.

As a veteran entering his tenth season in the NFL, Myers said he makes an effort to welcome the new additions to the Texans roster each year, especially if one is an offensive lineman. On the golf course before the start of the Texans annual fundraiser, Myers was in good spirits as he spoke to media for the first time since the draft.

Su’a-Filo joins last year’s drafted offensive linemen, tackles Brennan Williams and David Quessenberry, in competing for a starting spot. Williams and Quessenberry both suffered injuries that prevented them from playing in 2013. Head coach Bill O’Brien wants everyone to compete for their position this offseason.

“As of right now, they’re just trying to put the best five guys on the field and that’s for every position,” Myers said. “I treat every single year like it’s my first and my last. I go into every training camp competing with whoever is competing with me. I think it keeps me fresh and young too.”
