Position: College: North Carolina Height: 6-6 Weight: 280 40-yard dash: 4.74 Hometown: Bailey, N.C. Peppers is an extraordinary athlete. He has incredible size and speed. He plays with a good knee bend and gets good leverage on defenders. He will anchor and hold his ground, is extremely quick off the line of scrimmage and has a great anticipation of the snap count.. If he doesn't get to the quarterback initially, he has a very good vertical leap and will knock passes down at the line of scrimmage. He is very good at chasing plays from behind, and has enough catch-up speed to catch an unwary running back from the backside. He has enough strength to bull rush a tackle. Not only was Peppers an outstanding college football player - he was a great basketball player as well. If he would have given up football for basketball, he could have been a possible lottery pick in the NBA draft. Has a promising NFL future ahead of him.
