Metric Analysis: Jabrill Peppers has a very interesting data profile. Elite explosiveness and speed. With elite solo tackle and pass deflection market share. But his interception market share is not Pro Bowl level. In addition to not performing the short shuttle or 3-Cone to determine flexibility.

A common concern of many who watched Peppers’ film including myself. So, what do we have here? We have an explosive speed athlete who is solid at making tackles and forcing dead plays with his pass deflections. But may not have elite abilities to find and capitalize on the ball in the air. How he was used can also play a role here.

However, I would say based on his profile and athletic abilities that are proven I would project as a long-term free safety starter with a slight chance to become a Pro Bowl outlier due to age. He is a unique player with a unique profile. But being unique is not necessarily a bad thing when you have some elite qualities. It just means that the sum of all his parts are more likely to disappoint if you don’t start with low expectations.
