Gregg Williams doesn't know how to use Jabrill Peppers.

Just watching this game, and noticing how little Jabrill is involved in it.  He is lined up as a true free safety.  The perfect position for him is at nickel corner or some sort of hybrid space player as he was used in college.  That way he could be closer to the line of scrimmage and play the run more often.  When he was at Michigan it felt like he was involved in almost every play.  For Cleveland, he is just a bystander...

It's possible that Cleveland doesn't have the right personnel to compliment him so Williams has to use him in a way that doesn't take advantage of his skillset but still, to line him up as a free safety?  It's a waste of his abilities.

During the slow news month of June, I figured this may be of note for a few MGoBloggers who are interested in obtaining a Jabrill Peppers jersey (as I am).  

Jabrill will be flying around for the Brownies in #22.

Also noteworthy -- the browns just traded starting LB Demario Davis to the jets for a Safety, Calvin Pryor.   Will Peppers be playing a position similar to Viper in the NFL?  The Browns Defensive Coordinator seems really excited for Jabrill and his versatility, and this trade may be indicative that Jabrill will be playing a LB/S hybrid as opposed to strictly safety.  Hue Jackson has also hinted he may see some snaps on offense as well, and we all know the Browns need some playmakers there.

Can't wait to see him in the NFL.

 

Jabrill, Brantley and Browns' Management

With the Browns drafting Brantley, their defensive rookie class could turn the team around.  Peppers has always shown great leadership abilities, whether during games or practices or conditioning.  He should be able to help maximize the contributions of his fellow defensive rookies.

However, the Browns' management may not give him the chance to assist Brantley get back on track.  Apparently, they are already saying they may release Brantley from the team; that they haven't talked to Brantley about the incident, that if their "investigation" turns up information not to their liking, they will cut him.  http://www.espn.com/nfl/draft2017/story/_/id/19274225/2017-nfl-draft-cleveland-browns-draft-caleb-brantley-release-him

Michigan guys in McShay's latest mock

Michigan guys in McShay's latest mock

McShay's latest mock has a couple UM guys in round 1..  Taco is really trending up, but I'm stunned Jourdan Lewis fell out:

 

11. New Orleans Saints, 7-9

Taco Charlton, DE, Michigan

Charlton really came on strong in the second half of the season, posting 10 sacks in his final 10 games. He showed a lot of improvement with his hands and overall technique in 2016. The Saints need a pass-rusher opposite Cameron Jordan, and Charlton has the size, speed and power to be a difference-maker off the edge.

 

 

17. Washington Redskins, 8-7-1

Jabrill Peppers, S, Michigan

Peppers is a polarizing prospect in scouting circles. He needs to be protected from deep zone coverage, and he did not have much ball production at Michigan, with just one career interception. But he is a special athlete with elite speed and a unique knack for keeping blockers off his pads. His electrifying return ability will also be an asset in the NFL.

 

(And notable):

 

32. New England Patriots, 14-2

Haason Reddick, LB, Temple

Look for the Patriots to add a tight end early, perhaps Michigan's Jake Butt or Ole Miss' Evan Engram on Day 2. But given how the board fell, they could get better value by targeting Reddick here. He opened eyes at the Senior Bowl, proving he can thrive as an off-the-line LB. Reddick has a little Tedy Bruschi in him.
