New Pats tackle criticized Solder during Super Bowl


FOXBORO -- The NFL draft has gotten worse since Roger Goodell came in and moved it to prime time. Between the timing, the extra day and it being outside for some reason, it's not what it used to be. 

Here's one interesting (though silly) wrinkle that has been introduced of late, and it applies to all drafts: Whenever someone is drafted, somebody finds an old tweet of theirs and retweets it. Nothing will beat Charlie McAvoy's "I hate the Bruins so much" tweet. 

For new Patriots offensive tackle Antonio Garcia, it was a tweet sent out during Super Bowl LI in which a compliment for then Falcons defensive end Dwight Freeney ended up being a criticism of the man Garcia could one day replace. 

The tweet doesn't seem malicious at all, but it's hard to imagine Garcia thought while watching the Super Bowl that he'd end up playing with the guy.
