“Peppers continues to impress with a versatile skill set and rare playmaking ability. .” –Todd McShay
The sooner Jabrill Peppers settles into his eventual role in the NFL the better he will be able to begin his journey into a probably stellar NFL career. Used all over the field for Michigan, Peppers has been key to the resurgence of the Wolverines. However, NFL teams would most likely prefer he settle into a more specific role. Perhaps the best athlete in the draft, Peppers is just starting to grasp the safety position, and possesses both the ability to cover in the deep field, and to tackle in space and provide run support. Teams won’t care about his varied roles in college, as his potential as one of the new breed, super-versatile safeties, will make him a prime commodity in the draft.
