The Patriots made their second trade of the night, moving up in the third round to the Detroit Lions' pick at No. 85 (third round) to select Troy left tackle Antonio Garcia. The Patriots trade a third-round pick (96) and fourth-rounder (124) in that deal. Garcia is 6-foot-6 1/4 and 302 pounds, and played left tackle at Troy. Starting left tackle Nate Solder enters the final year of his contract.
