Texas A&M suspended cornerback Victor Davis after he was arrested and charged with shoplifting, and defensive end Gavin Stansbury, who was arrested in April, left the team for personal reasons.

It's that time of year that coaches dread, when unfortunately there tends to be as much activity off the field as on the field.

A defense that struggled mightily in 2013 will go into the 2014 season without two of its top players. That's not what Texas A&M defensive coordinator Mark Snyder needs as he tries to rebuild the Aggies' defense, but that's the hand he is dealt after the news of the dismissal of starters Darian Claiborne and Isaiah Golden.

Happy Tuesday! It's combine, combine and more combine talk around the league, as SEC athletes make news in their NFL pursuits. Also, spring football is starting soon -- on Friday for Texas A&M -- so there's a sprinkling of that as well in today's lunch links: If you haven't already heard (unlikely as it may be), South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney ran the 40-yard dash in 4.

Editor's note: This is the first part of a weeklong series looking at five players to watch in spring practice, which begins Feb. 28 for Texas A&M One of the primary issues for Texas A&M's defense in 2013 was the sheer number of inexperienced players, particularly freshmen, that had to play significant roles, either as starters or as members of the two-deep.
