35. Tennessee is a young team that is starting to find their way. Make no mistake. It’s going to take some time before they learn how to win consistently. That and one or two more solids drafts. Considering the state of the NFC South, their record should be improved from where it was in 2015. Still it’s not quite time to proclaim this team any sort of contender in the AFC.
<p>Even as the defense shows improvement from where it was a year ago, there is one overlapping problem they can’t ignore. A decided lack of star power. Right now it’s a collection of solid players but no real blue chip standouts. Nobody opponents have to game plan for. The only way they can potentially get such types is by targeting high end talent.</p>
<p>That is what Jabril Peppers is. There is a reason Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh has sung the praises of this young man for a long time. He’s one of the most versatile athletes in college football. Big enough to play linebacker, fast enough to play defensive back or wide receiver. His progress has been steady and undeniable. Imagine what Dick LeBeau could do with a multitool like him in the secondary.</p>. S. Michigan. Jabrill Peppers . 7. player
