    There's no way the first round goes down that way. Peppers is a helluva player ... too similar to Jones and isa to be a first round need though. I'd be torn unless I was confident we'd use him right ... which I am hesitant. Passing on Cunningham would be brutal.

    Peppers returning punts alone will win some games but I just don't see drafting him unless there's a plan. I can't see him just being a strong safety. Anyway if I must have a Michigan man, give me some Taco.

    Do you not think that he would be more suited to a Tampa2 defense and have a role similar to what Lynch did?

    Peppers' versatility, physicality, and athletic ability would be welcome, but in that situation, I'm drafting Takkarist McKinley.

    *should add the caveat: Combine is super important to McKinley, but I think he'll perform well.

    Potentially mainly because he's a rover and plays all over so he never had a defined position in college. He best compares to Deone Buchanon

    2 certain things in the NFL: Cleveland not having a winning season, and Cleveland always having at least 2 picks in the 1st round yet it never seems to make a difference.

    The best comparison for Peppers in my vision is Troy Polamalu. That's how you'll utilize his skillset if you know what you're doing. In the box covering short and medium range crossers and buzzing the flats, and up close to the LOS as a blitzer. People forget Polamalu was also a LB/S hybrid early in his career at USC and that's how the Steelers used him.

    The major difference being Peppers hasn't shown quite the ball skills of Polamalu or Bucannon in college. Bucannon spent much more time as a single high safety in deep coverage than Peppers ever has. I don't necessarily agree that he's the best comparison for Peppers.

    isn't Cunningham a bit too skinny to play MLB?

    He's got the frame to add plenty.

    Peppers is a gamechanging talent. We might have Reshad in house already but you find ways to fit talents like Peppers. At #22, very hard to pass up.

    Jabril Peppers is an exceptional athlete, who does not play any offensive or defensive position exceptionally.

    He's a Taylor Mays type.

    The lack of DeMarcus Walker in the first round is surprising.

    I feel the same way. I feel we already have this kind of player in jones

    BUT if he comes in and plays like a Deone Bucannon I'm all game. If he can gain about 15-20 lbs he can play wlb for us. although I would rather kiko move over there Peppers would bring something to that position that we have never had. plus he could cover te's. the more I think the better I would feel about it. I honestly don't see it happening

    Would Peppers fit at MLB in a Tampa 2? I can imagine the playmakers on the field with IAQ and Reshad at safety.

    That's not true either, while he hasn't shown great ball skills, he's a screen destroyer, and reads the game very well.

    Taylor mays was all hype and no substance. The entire draft forum at the time was in agreement he would do nothing in the nfl. They aren't even in the same stratosphere as prospects.

    I agree. Even with all the needs at linebacker, I think Miami goes DE in the first. Have to think Walker is on the short-list at around the 22 spot.

    ---------- Post added at 12:15 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:13 PM ----------

    Peppers is interesting, especially if Miami wanted to run a 4-2-5 and use him in that hybrid role. That could be a defense that works better to defend New England's short passing game.

    Taylor Mays had great size and straight line speed but his lack of quickness was a huge problem. Reminiscent of Louis Oliver especially when he was trying to cover Andre Reed of the Bills, but I'd take Louis Oliver over Mays any day. Peppers is a great athlete, not just big and fast like Mays.

    I loved Oliver's play, but putting him man on a HoF Wr like Reed on a snowy field in the playoffs was possibly the lowlight of a career of Lowlights by Oliviadotti

    When the brownstains are playing chutes and ladders on draft day; it seems like they like to move up to #22 to get their next QB of the future.
