Keith Wenning exhibited nice touch in hitting wide receiver Jeremy Butler down the right sideline. Several plays later, Wenning found tight end Crockett Gillmore in the middle of the field, one of several catches on the day for the third-round selection. The Ball State quarterback, who was taken in the sixth round of last week's draft, showed plenty of accuracy and arm strength on the second official day of the Ravens' rookie minicamp. But it's everything leading up to the 6-foot-3 quarterback bringing back his right arm and letting the ball go that has been the biggest challenge for Wenning this week.
