Blast add Size and Power!!!!!!

Memphis, Tenn:  Blast head coach Carlos Alexander  likes to feature a balanced mix of both veterans and rookies on his squad. The second year Blast head coach added two big pieces to the team’s 2015 roster Saturday morning. Offensive  lineman Rodrigo Garcia “aka The Brazilian Warrior”  and defensive lineman Dexter Dp Patterson both join the Blast.

The 6’4, 300lbs Garcia is an impressive offensive  guard who is from Belo Horizonte, Brazil.  #76 Garcia has played in Brazil as well as in China for the American Football League of China for the Shanghai Warriors, he is dominant in both phases of the game and has the physical tools that project well to the pro development  level. He is a very good pass blocker for a guard. He sets up quickly, has great balance, and has the strength to absorb the bull rush with ease. As a run blocker, he shows the ability to lock on to a defender and drive them into the ground. Garcia’s athleticism and agility allow him to pull and pick up moving targets..

Dexter Dp Patterson stands in at 6’4, 270 lbs and played college football at Tennessee State. He is a true 4-3 defensive end that has the ability to play the run as well as he plays the pass. Patterson isn’t a freak athlete, but he is a solid athlete, that uses a quick first step and solid quickness to beat the blocker and apply pressure. He doesn’t have elite closing speed, but he has enough to consistently get to the quarterback and impact the play. His ability against the run is what makes him different .Patterson has impressive natural strength and shows the ability to consistently get off blocks to make the tackle. He plays with some attitude and will battle until the whistle. Patterson may never lead the league in sacks but he is a well rounded end, that will be make a lot of plays!!!!
