Beier is the perfect fit at offensive guard for the Gophers, with the athleticism to pull and get out in front of plays. But there are those who believe he has the intelligence and football I.Q. to thrive at center. For now, the plan is to play him at guard.
Depth along the offensive line is not a luxury the Gophers will have next season, but barring the most desperate of scenarios, I believe the staff will be able to redshirt this freshman class of offensive linemen, allowing for a full year of strength and conditioning at the college level before they ever have to see game action.
