Probably won't happen, but I would really like to see what another year of development with Don Brown and staff would do for this kid (especially working on pass coverage). With just some minor improvement, he could probably have a dominant Heisman run next year. Oh well...

Even if Jabrill slips to #10, it's still worth more than $15 million over four years with a lot of it in the signing bonus and three years guaranteed.  Why would he risk that kind of money to come back one more year?  Harbaugh will tell him he's welcome back, but that he should take the money while it's on the table.

It depends on his priorities. The safe move is to take the money if course, but if he wants to be "the best" and prove it before moving on, he might. I'm not sure how important that, or getting championships is for him, but I could see the draw for it for top-level competitors.

"he's so overrated...and he's just ok at everything and not great at anything...and he only has 1 interception...and ALL the NFL scouts are wrong suggesting he's a first round pick...and he doesn't deserve the attention he gets...and he wouldn't even start at OSU or Bama..."


All I've been reading this week...but I have a feeling winning a bunch of awards and being a 1st round pick won't make these people smarter.

does has some pretty funny pieces (the weekly MS Paint and themed power polls are good, imo), but they definitely do have a strong Michigan hate thing going. They have a lot of msu, psu, and msu folks, as well as general Michigan hate. Not sure why - there is no real msu or osu hate, even when msu took a nosedive this year. 

I just choose to ignore the self-generated Jabrill/Harbaugh haterism over there and have become a bit more selective in what I read and participate in. Lately, it's been 50/50 for me.

Easy choice, couldn't have gone wrong picking him or adoree Jackson. But with peppers having so many roles on defense alone I think this is the right one outright.

This is proof that sometimes recruiting stars do matter.  Recruiting isn't perfect but high star guys tend to become superb players at a much higher rate than other guys.  He lived up to the hype every step of the way.  What a tremendous talent.

Peppers is another great player in the Pantheon of Harbaugh players that will go on to the NFL (Next year). Believe that in addition to going to the NFL, having players receive awards will continue to attract the most promising recruits to Michigan.

Yeah, this pick seemed like a no-brainer - I would have been shocked if it had been anyone else actually.

I do agree with others, this clearly means that he's almost there but not NFL there, so do come back, Jabrill to hone these skills just a little bit more.

(I'll miss him too, guys)
