Yes, Jabrill Peppers is talented enough to play on both sides of the ball and even as a return man. However, while those are fun roles to envision, it can also be a daunting task for players. It takes a toll mentally and physically. Peppers could line up at corner, running back and even wide receiver and be a factor because he is a naturally gifted athlete who does not have a steep learning curve when it comes to playing the game. The question for any coaching staff is whether or not it is worth the injury risk or risk of overwhelming a player, especially if you have enough good players at RB, WR and CB. Corners are a premium position, and they don’t come along often, so you can bet defense will likely take the lead when it comes to how to play Peppers.
