Bulaga Battling For Starting Guard Spot

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Bryan Bulaga's journey to become the Green Bay Packers' left tackle of the future might include a significant layover at left guard.

Packers coaches have been cross-training Bulaga at left tackle and left guard in training camp recently. And with veteran Chad Clifton currently entrenched at tackle, Bulaga could be in the mix to win a starting job at guard.

Bulaga, the No. 23 overall pick out of Iowa, says learning a new position is challenging -- but the possibility of getting on the field consistently as a rookie is exciting.
