The former four star recruit and Under Armour All-American had an illustrious career as a Cardinal. He became Stanford’s first true freshman to start on the offensive line since 2000 where he also played all 14 games, while doing the same as a sophomore. He started all 13 games as a junior before earning multiple first team All-American honors as a senior, becoming the first player in school history to win the Outland Trophy Award as college football’s best interior lineman; Garnett was also the Morris Trophy Award winner (Pac-12’s Lineman of the Year) and a team captain.
