Best: Terrence Brooks

Like C.J. Mosley, rookie safety Terrence Brooks flew around the field providing big plays. Brooks looks like the Ravens’ deep safety of the future and the present, as he has excelled in deep coverage in consecutive weeks. Brooks has more range than any other Ravens defensive back, and his instincts have been impressive.

On the surface, Brooks’ stats aren’t too impressive, with just three tackles. He did manage a pass break up and a fumble recovery as well, but the stats don’t tell the whole story.

Even when Brooks didn’t make the play, his number 31 jersey was constantly around the ball. He was aggressive but not reckless defending both the run and the pass, and he did a great job of limiting the Colts deep passing game.

Brooks looks like a very high upside safety at this point, which is good to see considering the Ravens’ struggles at the position the past two years.
