ATHENS, Ga. -- Mark Beard has never played offensive guard before. Neither has Austin Long.

Junior college transfer Beard played offensive tackle at every level before getting a taste of guard during spring practice. He practiced behind Dallas Lee throughout the preseason before replacing Long as the backup left tackle on Saturday, with Long moving to right guard.
