EUGENE, Ore. -- In the midst of player unionization movements and NCAA rules discussions, the Oregon defense is reminding itself of a simple fact while working through spring practices: Football is fun.

You remember the three-headed monster, right? It's about returning production that will scare -- terrify! --opponents. Or not. On offense, it's elite combinations at quarterback, running back and receiver.
The first day of Oregon's spring practices is April 1 (no, we aren't fooling you), which means we've got about three weeks until the Ducks take the field again. Last week we counted down the top five Oregon recruiting classes and this week we're taking a look at the top five players to keep track of during spring ball.

The shuffling of defensive coordinators appears to be over. We think. And as previously noted, all five of the top scoring defenses in the Pac-12 last year have seen changes at the top of the defensive coaching hierarchy.
The Pac-12 has seen a flurry of defensive coordinator movement over the last couple of weeks -- starting with the power struggle for former Washington defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox to the recent exoduses of Stanford's Derek Mason to Vanderbilt as head coach and UCLA's Lou Spanos to the Tennessee Titans as linebackers coach.
While the return of UCLA QB Brett Hundley for his redshirt junior season was the weekend's big news, an early-entry to the NFL draft talent drain is hitting the Pac-12 hard. While a number of big-name players have not yet formally announced their intensions -- such as Arizona RB Ka'Deem Carey, Stanford OG David Yankey, Oregon CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, Arizona State LB Carl Bradford and Oregon State QB Sean Mannion -- already 17 players have announced they will give up their remaining eligibility to turn professional.
