TCU's defense will look different in 2012 after three defensive starters, headlined by linebacker Tanner Brock were arrested on Wednesday morning. The other football players arrested: starting defensive tackle D.J. Yendrey, starting strong safety Devin Johnson and backup offensive lineman Ty Horn.

A two-year starter at linebacker, Brock injured his foot in the Baylor game in 2011 and missed the rest of the season. But he had NFL potential and was expected to anchor the linebacking corps in 2012. The junior led TCU in tackles in 2010 with 106, 26 more than the next-closest Horned Frog. He started beside Tank Carder in TCU's Rose Bowl victory against Wisconsin a little more than a year ago.

But Brock isn't the only starter that was arrested. Yendry started all but one game at defensive tackle. He had three sacks, 5.5 tackles for loss and two fumble recoveries. Johnson worked his way into the starting lineup midway through the season and started the final eight games at strong safety, including TCU's one-point win on the road at No. 5 Boise State.
