Wolverines host first practice in Rome (1:43)

ESPN Stats and Information  

With Jabrill Peppers and Taco Charlton off the board, Michigan had as many first-round picks this year (two) as it had in the previous 10 seasons combined. It's just the second time that multiple Wolverines defenders went in the first round, the other time coming in 1972.

Todd McShay ESPN Senior Writer 

If I was Cleveland, I would've taken TE David Njoku instead of S Jabrill Peppers. They need to accumulate more weapons for when the finally do draft a quarterback, and Njoku has a ton of upside. I'm not as high on Peppers as others. I think it will take time to get first-round value out of him as a defender.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Jabrill Peppers can make an impact in Gregg Williams' defensive scheme. Williams wants versatility at the second-level and in the secondary. Look for Peppers to play safety, dime back, nickel linebacker and drop down to blitz when Cleveland aligns in sub-package personnel.

Jabrill Peppers is the 6th Michigan player selected by the Browns in the 1st round, their most from any school in the common draft era.
