#4 – Jabrill Peppers, S/LB, University of Michigan
Jabrill Peppers is an intriguing prospect. Not only does he lack a clear cut position, but the jury is still out on his availability at pick #28.
In college, Peppers played primarily as a safety for the Wolverines. However, he did take snaps at running back. In fact, he showed so much potential at the position that Cowboys insider Bryan Broaddus believes it may be his best position.
At the NFL Combine, Peppers worked out in the LB group. I think he is a prime example of a hybrid safety/linebacker. Much like what the Arizona Cardinals do with Deone Bucannon, I believe the Cowboys could with Peppers.
He fits as a strong safety that mostly plays down in the box, where he can take advantage of his nose for the ball. With time, he can develop into a better cover-man, and become more of a true safety.
Since Barry Church will not be playing in Dallas next year, the Cowboys would be foolish not to consider drafting a replacement. Jabrill Peppers could be that guy.
