Former South Carolina quarterback Stephen Garcia never heard his name get called in the 2012 NFL Draft.
Four years later, though, he’s finally been drafted.
Garcia was one of three former SEC players to be drafted in the inaugural Major League Football draft on Wednesday.
Garcia, who has spent time with the Canadian Football League’s Montreal Alouettes and the Arena Football League’s Tampa Bay Storm, was drafted in the “franchise” round of the eight-team draft.
The former Gamecocks signal-caller landed on former coach Galen Hall’s team.
Former Arkansas wide receiver Joe Adams and former Ole Miss defensive end Emmanuel Stephens were also drafted.
Adams was the No. 1 pick by coach Dave Campo. Stephens was selected four spots later by coach Wayne Geis.
The MLFB draft will continue through Thursday and Friday, so there’s a chance even more SEC alum could land with teams.
The MLFB is an eight-team league that will launch in the Spring of 2016. The cities have yet to be announced.
