Patriots Select Troy OT Antonio Garcia With 85th Pick

Taylor McCloud — Pats Militia

Just minutes after selecting Derek Rivers with the 83rd pick in the draft, the Patriots traded up to #85, and selected Antonio Garcia, an offensive tackle from Troy University.

Now, I’m not going to sit here and try to analyze a lineman. I’m not nearly smart enough to do that. If you want to take a look at Garcia and let me know what you think, be my guest. His highlights are right here.

In the meantime, I do want to talk about two things Garcia said after being drafted last night because this guy is a goddamn quote machine and I love it.

When asked about protecting Tom Brady, Garcia had this to say:

Obviously, I love this. I’ve publicly said that I’d take a bullet for Tom Brady. It’s good to know his linemen will, too.

Surprisingly though, this wasn’t my favorite line from Garcia. When asked about a college accomplishment, he was short, sweet, and to the point.

I don’t know why, but responding “That’s absolutely true,” to a question in your first professional interview is so damn awesome. He could have been humble about the whole thing, you know, acknowledge the stat and move on from it, but no. This dude let everyone know exactly how many sacks he gave up last season. Not a soul beat him to his quarterback last year and he wants all of New England to know it.

I love it.

Go Pats.

P.S. Not allowing a sack for an entire season is impressive. According to Brian Phillips, Garcia anchored the offensive line that allowed the fewest sacks in the country in 2016. Garcia talks the talk and walks the walk.

Avoiding the bank will simply draw some sort of foreclosed final result. Thanks for your publication.
