In this note we give an easy proof of the existence of generically smooth components of the expected dimension of certain Brill–Noether loci of stable rank 2 vector bundles on a curve with general moduli, with related applications to the Hilbert scheme of scrolls.

Keywords: Brill–Noether theory of vector bundles, Hilbert schemes of scrolls, moduli
