Jabrill Peppers went through the first part of the NFL Combine on Friday: Measurements.
Peppers is listed as 6-foot-1 on Michigan’s official website, but he didn’t quite measure up to that Friday. Peppers officially checked in at 5-foot-10 and 7/8ths inches and 213 pounds. Here are his full measurements:

Peppers height could be a knock on him leading up to the draft. He’s expected to move to safety in the NFL after primarily playing linebacker for Michigan in 2016. Of course, Peppers is as intriguing a player as any in the draft because of his versatility and ability to make plays with the football.
Peppers will get a chance to show off his athleticism later in the combine. He’s set to run his 40-yard dash with the linebackers on Sunday, and according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Peppers will also work out with defensive backs on Monday.
Don't see many, if any, players doing something like this: Michigan's Jabril Peppers is working out with LBs on Sunday and DBs on Monday.

No matter how Peppers does at the combine, it will generate a lot of discussion.
