Garcia, a third-round selection in 2017, never played a down for New England. He was placed on the non-football illness list before last season due to blood clots in his lungs.

03/01/18 - OT Antonio Garcia was placed on the non-football illness list before the first game last season and never made it to the field for his rookie season in 2017. The reason for the move was finally disclosed Thursday. Garcia was dealing with blood clots in his lungs, the Boston Herald reported, citing a source. A third-round draft pick out of Troy, Garcia was placed on blood thinners and lost at least 40 pounds, according to the newspaper. Expected to make a full recovery, Garcia has resumed workouts in an effort to regain his weight and strength, although there is no timetable for a possible return to the field.
01/25/17 - 2017 SENIOR BOWL, TUESDAY: Offensive tackles Antonio "Tony" Garcia (Troy) and Forrest Lamp (Western Kentucky) stand out on tape as two of the better blockers on this year's roster but the weigh-in process was not kind to either. The 6-6 3/8, 293-pound Garcia possesses a relatively narrow waist for an offensive linemen, which raises questions about his ability to add and maintain "good" weight, as well as hold up to the powerful bull-rushers he will face in the NFL. The compactly-built Lamp is the polar opposite at 6-3 3/4, 305 pounds but he possesses the shortest arms of any offensive lineman in Mobile at just 31 1/8, virtually guaranteeing that he will be projected inside to guard or center for most teams. - Rob Rang & Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
01/25/17 - 2017 SENIOR BOWL, TUESDAY: A prospect who entered the week with considerable buzz, Troy offensive tackle Antonio Garcia (6-6, 293, 33-inch arms) had an up-and-down practice. On a positive note, he showed the hand strength to halt and control edge rushers in one-on-ones. But he also struggled with speed, lunging and getting off balance mid-shuffle. Garcia showed several of the concerns that also show on his game film -- concerns that won't keep him from being a future pro, but issues with his core strength and technique that need addressed before he is ready for consistent NFL snaps. - Rob Rang & Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
