Terrence Brooks said Wednesday that transitioning from his previous role with the national champion Florida State Seminoles to a spot with the Ravens has proven difficult, though team activities this spring helped the rookie safety get familiar with his new home. “It was a little hard at first,” Brooks said. “Coming into a new system is definitely going to be challenging. But for the most part, with more studying and just being a student of the game, I feel like I've got a good grasp on how this defense is and the scheme.

Terrence Brooks wasn't having any fun. Seven months after helping Florida State win a national championship, he was just another NFL rookie, lining up as the Ravens' third-string safety during training camp. He was struggling to master the defensive playbook and fulfill all the responsibilities the coaching staff asked of him. He was distracted by things off the field and bothered by factors he couldn't control. Fellow defensive back Chykie Brown saw a teammate who wasn't taking football seriously enough.

The Ravens have signed first-round pick C.J. Mosley , finalizing a four-year deal with the inside linebacker worth $8.787 million on Tuesday. The deal includes a standard fifth-year option and a $4.711 million signing bonus. With Mosley's deal done, that leaves third-round pick Terrence Brooks, a safety out of Florida State, as the team's only unsigned draft pick. Mosley -- one of the top inside linebackers in the draft and aplayer the Ravens were pleased to see still on the board at No. 17 -- is expected to challenge second-year player Arthur Brown for the starting weak-side linebacker role alongside Daryl Smith.

Ravens rookie free safety Terrence Brooks chased Robert Griffin III toward the right sideline on the Washington Redskins' first drive in the first quarter. Brooks accelerated as he pursued Griffin and fought through a stiff-arm attempt to shove the quarterback out of bounds for a sack and a loss of 4 yards. "RGIII tried to outrun me, he tried to stiff-arm me, and I take a lot of pride on playing fast and not letting anyone do that to me," Brooks said. "I wasn't even paying attention to who it was. I know what type of player he is, but you can't get caught up in names like that.

SETTING THE SCENE The Ravens' final official practice of training camp started around noon with a walk-through practice and ended just before 3 p.m. Most of the starters finished up just after 2:30 p.m. Players wore helmets and shells. Like it was for most of camp, it was sunny and relatively mild. LOOKING GOOD Tight end Dennis Pitta was sidelined earlier this week by an ankle injury and he spent the early part of practice testing it out. Once he got on the field, he certainly looked healthy, making several plays down the field.

Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees won't know for sure until his players strap on the pads and can start making tackles, but if the way his young defense is getting to the ball in organized team activities is any indication, the Ravens might be nearing a return to their fast, ball-swarming defense of old. "I think [the team speed] has improved a lot," Pees said. "It looks like it out here in OTAs, but again, we've got to see it when all the pads are on. … But I really do believe that we've gotten faster.

There is not too much that reporters can take away from one day of watching Ravens rookie minicamp. Players are still feeling their way around a little bit, learning the plays and getting to know their new teammates and coaches. In past minicamps, we raved about Brandon Williams, Deonte Thompson and Nigel Carr , questioned Torrey Smith's hands and wondered whether Murphy Holloway could become the latest player to go from a standout college basketball player to an NFL tight end. Holloway was cut by the Ravens the next day. The point is, it's foolish to make any definitive conclusions so early in the offseason program.

With the first of their two third-round picks, the Ravens filled one of their biggest needs. The Ravens used the 79th overall pick in the draft to select Florida State Terrence Brooks, a rangy free safety who is also a standout on special teams. Brooks was the second consecutive Florida State player that the Ravens acquired, following the second-round selection of defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan. It also marked the third straight pick the Ravens used to upgrade the middle of their defense.

The Ravens wrapped up the three-day NFL draft with nine players (four on defense, five on offense). Members of The Baltimore Sun's staff take a moment to grade the draft overall for the Ravens as they prepare for the upcoming season. Jeff Zrebiec, reporter Grade: C+ I was reminded of the risk of immediately grading draft picks when baltimoresun.com put up PDF files of past post-draft editions and the 2002 version was decidely lukewarm on the Ed Reed selection . You just never know.

Sorry this is a bit late, Scores Baltimore Hockey had a triple-header last night, and I'm proud to say we won them all. It made waking up for the Coffee Companion, where we recap the daily sports headlines, a bit harder to do, but is going to make the coffee even more necessary. - Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis went deep to open the bottom of the first, and that was all the Orioles needed for a 1-0 win over Seattle . Toronto lost three straight to Houston, putting the Orioles 3.5 games up entering tonight's makeup game against the Nationals.
