Some interesting nuggets from Hensley via ESPN:
- Joe Flacco looks more and more comfortable with his footwork every week. He was fluid in running a cone drill off to the side. His throws, however, were erratic. He was picked off again by cornerback Jimmy Smith, who returned it for a touchdown. Flacco's best pass was one that was zipped to Torrey Smith in between three defenders.
- There was a lot of talk of safety Terrence Brooks starting as a rookie. But the third-round pick appears to have dropped on the depth chart behind Matt Elam, Darian Stewart, Omar Brown and Jeromy Miles. Brooks was running in the defensive backfield with safety Dexter Moody. No one should jump to conclusions because it's still a long way until the season begins.
- One cornerback to keep an eye on is undrafted rookie Deji Olatoye. He was rotated in with the first and second team defenses and can play a big role on special teams. Olatoye is from North Carolina A&T, but his college career began at Colorado where he was teammates with Jimmy Smith.

Hoping Brooks is going to turn it up soon, the other guys don't really excite me with their cover ability at the safety position. Jimmy continues his great offseason so far with yet another pick 6. And maybe we've found another late round gem in Olatoye, guess we'll find out in pre season.
