Florida senior OL Max Garcia's "effort and hand placement have stood out on tape when we've studied him this week," observed Scout's Inc.
"He's so good at latching on to his man that he can quickly get back into position even when he loses balance. He isn't the most physically gifted lineman, but he consistently executes his assignment," wrote Todd McShay, Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl. Garcia, a former Maryland Terrapin, has made starts at center, left tackle and left guard during his career. CBS Sports' Rob Rang likes his knee bend and flexibility. Jan 25 - 2:01 AM

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein believes Florida senior C Max Garcia capitalized on his opportunity to fill in at the Senior Bowl.

Garcia got the Senior Bowl opportunity after three centers -- Andy Gallik of Boston College, Hroniss Grasu of Oregon and Cameron Erving of Florida State -- had to pull out due to injuries. "Garcia got the call and made the most of his opportunity with a steady week of practice reps," Zierlein wrote. "His strength at the point of attack against Washington's Danny Shelton and Iowa's Carl Davis caught the eyes of scouts and could force them to go back and take a closer look at him once again." Garcia, a Maryland transfer, has started at T, G and C during his career.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang likes the knee bend and flexibility displayed by versatile Florida senior OL Max Garcia.

Garcia, a former Maryland Terrapin, has made starts at left tackle and left guard during his career. Florida coaches shifted him to center during the spring, and the Rimington Award committee recognized his potential by placing him on their preseason watch list. "Florida may be implementing an up-tempo offense but that won't limit the size of their linemen," Rang wrote. "Garcia's broad, powerful frame gives him the appearance of a traditional guard than center but he plays with proper knee bend, has long arms and is almost small in comparison to fellow senior Trenton Brown (6-8, 350), who is expected to emerge at guard after starting the final five games last year at right tackle. Neither Garcia nor Brown are light enough on their feet to handle outside duties, but each shows above-average balance for their size."

Florida's top two offensive tackles, D.J. Humphries and Tyler Moore, will miss the game due to injury. In fact, Moore will miss the rest of the season. Garcia has seen time at guard this year.

Garcia started all 12 games as a sophomore at Maryland, but transferred to Florida prior tot his season and was forced to redshirt. With D.J. Humphries on the left side, we expect Garcia to play mostly right tackle, and he will have two years of eligibility remaining.
