Something to pass the time. Alabama leads the way with 3 players, Michigan has two, no one else has more than one.
Jourdan Lewis, Michigan
A feisty man corner, no cornerback can match Lewis’ production in coverage the last two years as he had the top coverage grade coming into the season and this year he’s only allowed three catches on 10 targets for seven yards. Lewis can mirror receivers an man coverage and he combines that with strong tackling and fine work against the run.
Jabrill Peppers, Michigan
We’re calling Peppers a safety on our Dream Team and we’ll tap into his versatility and move him all around the defense. He can play the run as his 86.5 grade ranks second in the nation and he’s equally adept at attacking as a blitzer. Peppers covers tight ends well and we’ll use him in that capacity, while also letting him dabble as a runner and on special teams where he’s showed off his athleticism this season.
I was surprised at how well the offensive line graded out. I'm interested to see how much UFR agrees.
Basically says a lot of what we all already know but it's cool to have PFF espousing the same optimism for our defense this season.
