Mel Kiper on Jabrill Peppers: 'Isn't A Fit For Every Team' In The NFL

Mel Kiper has voiced his opinion on Michigan's Jabrill Peppers and his NFL Draft stock.

Jabrill Peppers is one of the more versatile players we've seen in college football in quite some time. The junior has not yet come to a decision on whether or not he will forgo his senior season for the NFL, but that doesn't mean his name isn't among mock drafts. ESPN's Mel Kiper offered his thoughts on the 2016 Heisman Trophy finalist and where he may fit in the NFL.

There is no argument that Peppers has the talent to play at the next level, but each team may value him completely differently than the next. Whether they see him as a linebacker, a player who could drop back and play a rover-like position, maybe a playmaker on the outside or just as a special teams specialist are all considerations teams would have to make.

Some teams in the NFL may try and use him in multiple positions just like Jim Harbaugh does with the Wolverines or maybe they'll just want him to hone in on his skills in just one spot.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out if Peppers declares for the NFL Draft following the season.
