2017 NFL Draft: Cleveland Browns Select Jabrill Peppers With The 25th Overall Pick

New, comments

It’s final: Jabrill is taking his talents to Cleveland.

NCAA Football: Michigan at Ohio State Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

Well, that was fun. And now that Jabrill’s Michigan career is finally, officially, behind him, we know the next stage in Jabrill’s career - the Cleveland Browns. I’m sure that will be equally as interesting to watch unfold.

Of course, it’s easy to wonder what might have been if Jabrill’s Michigan career had gone a little differently, whether with fewer injuries or one more touchdown or two or maybe another season in Maize and Blue. But the future is bright for the New Jersey star, and that’s all that really matters. Now, it’s about making an impact in Cleveland and turning his considerable talents into something productive - and maybe more.

If Peppers can be at the forefront of how the league uses some of its athletes, proving his doubters wrong and affirming his unique path to get to this point, that would be amazing. But it’s still a long - and interesting - road ahead. We wish him the best in Cleveland, and we’ll be watching him closely. Good luck, Pep.
