I'm usually not the biggest Pat Forde fan, but he's covered a lot of ground here and collected some interesting tidbits I was not aware of.
“Me and football,” Peppers says, “we’ve got a real good relationship. It got me out of a lot of bad situations. It started as a way to channel my aggression and my anger.”
In the first SI in-season mock draft, not only is Jabrill Peppers projected 5th overall to Jacksonville, but his position is listed as "S/LB/SUPERMAN"....
Interview with Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst madison.com, 26 September:
As founder, chairman, AND president of the "One More Year Jabrill" foundation, I am disconcerted at NFL projections already making the way around The Internets.
I am further disheartened by the projections of WHERE he might go.
I wish to start a GoFundMe account to keep him in school and avoid being selected here...
Yes, I know...mock drafts be damned.
Jabrill Peppers, SS, Michigan: Entering a contract year, Johnathan Cyprien has yet to cement himself as a starting-caliber safety. An above average athlete, Peppers can do just about everything on the football field.
At least one person will be happy about this should it come to fruitiion.
p.s. Jabrill should be #1. Obviously.
Good read for a slow day on the board about Jabrill. I've read some of these quotes before but the article as a whole is worth the read for those that can't get enough Michigan Football.
