Defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot offered some insights on certain players after Wednesday’s practice:

Linebacker Nico Firios: “Nico is doing some good things. Nico was injured in the fall last year and missed a lot of reps in the offseason, so had a little rust on him to start with but he’s doing some good things to get better.”

Linebacker Kash Daniel: “Kash Daniel, it was good that he was here in the spring because it got him a little bit further ahead of the scheme and the playbook. Kash plays very hard. Kash is a physical player. Still has some assignment things and some technique things that he needs to improve on, but he’s doing a good job.”

Cornerback Derrick Baity: “I think Derrick, he earned a starting job last year halfway through the season. Chris (Westry) had earned his starting job at the beginning of the season, so Derrick had played half as many games as Chris. We went into the offseason and the spring and I thought Derrick had an excellent offseason and spring. He really played well this spring and he’s continued to play well in training camp. Derrick has made himself into a very good player.”
