2017 NFL Draft Grades: Browns get an F for selecting Jabrill Peppers No. 25
The versatile safety will get plenty of reps with the Browns, but he's a questionable fit in the NFL

Pete Prisco's Grade: F
"I don't like this pick at all. Where does he play?"
Prisco added on our live draft show that this is an "awful, awful, awful, awful, awful, awful pick with a capital A, which is why I give them an F."

The Browns are going to get some publicity for their first round in this draft, because they added Myles Garrett No. 1, then traded way down and picked up a big name in Peppers. Peppers is a modern NFL player if there ever was one, becoming the first player in the modern combine to work out as both a linebacker and a defensive back. He's a versatile, dangerous playmaker (albeit who only had one interception with Michigan) that can move all over the field as a chess piece.
"We know the Browns need help on defense, and Jabrill Peppers can fill a variety of roles. Still, the Browns DST doesn't improve with this move. Ignore the Browns DST in all leagues." -- Jamey Eisenberg
