*After having practice cut short on Wednesday evening, Blackmon says he is expecting a physical session on Thursday morning, the first day of two-a-days. The practice at 4:15 p.m. is expected to be in shorts.
*Blackmon says he has seen some good things from true freshman cornerback number nine (Neiko Thorpe).
*On the subject of Thorpe, again at Wednesday's workout he showed the ability to cover a lot of ground in a short period of time and displayed his long reach while defending passes.
*Senior Robert Dunn and freshman Philip Pierre-Louis had a good day catching punts. Pierre-Louis has made significant improvement this week. Dunn has been steady as had sophomore Chris Slaughter, who missed that part of practice while taking a final exam.
*Christian Thompson, a freshman from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., came to AU with a reputation as a physical player and has shown signs of that in practice.
Christian Thompson from St. Thomas Aquinas High, the 2007 Florida big school state champions, is shown at Wednesday's practice.
*In addition to the NFL scouts who visited practice on Tuesday, there was one at Wednesday's session from the Buffalo Bills.
*True freshman defensive end Cameron Henderson had some good plays in one-on-one drills. The newcomer from Shades Valley has a quick first step in pass rush drills.
