The Jabrill Peppers / Charles Woodson Comparison

ESPN - "Top breakout players in 2015: Nos. 10-1"

#7. Jabrill Peppers, Michigan S

"Even the No. 2 overall prospect from the 2014 recruiting class wants to tamp down the connection being made between him and Charles Woodson. For now.

New coach Jim Harbaugh intends to use Peppers on offense, defense and special teams, but Peppers, a defensive back by trade, has hardly played. Presuming he’ll hold up to the standard set by the 1997 Heisman winner is silly, at least at this point in time. Peppers himself called it “insane” as camp was starting. “Let me play first,” he said.

Despite the small sample size of snaps -- he appeared in three games last September -- Peppers was the only Wolverine who surfaced on our recent countdown of the top 100 CFB players. There’s a belief, both internally and externally, that he’s primed for a quantum leap as a redshirt freshman. Harbaugh should use him all that he can, considering Peppers likely has only two more seasons in a maize and blue uniform."
