Jabrill Peppers is the Evan Engram of Safeties

Anakim : 3/20/2019 10:50 am
To paraphrase the infamous Jerry Reese phrase about JPP and Adrien Robinson.


But this one is actually apropos, because just like Engram can line up anywhere (outside, slot, inline, backfield...), Peppers can line up anywhere on defense (in the box, at the Moneybacker, CF...)



So, uh, yeah. Don't really have much more to add to that.
Swell

Peppers was even used on offense in certain situations at Michigan. Great athlete.

Correct. He was a RB. I actually thought he'd be a very good RB if he chose that position.

Even played QB in wild cat...played 11 different positions actually
He is likely second best RB on the team

And also KR.
As for Engram comparison, you forgot to mention hands.
The FS ability  
HoustonGiant : 3/20/2019 11:23 am : link
is nice. Collins was a great SS, great run support, but coverage nightmare.

Having a good FS is something we've missed for years.
Greg for the win

Their grades are sketchy, at least in part because they don't account for playing time, but charts like this from them are informative.
Are we sure

he isn't going to play ILB?

I always thought Ogletree was the moneybacker but then they wanted Bucannon too.

His lack of covering ability is exactly why he isn't here anymore. No need for that kind of $ for a run stopper who can't cover

They aren't good in the secondary. Playing him at ILB is a luxury they can't afford.
