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
