Could Mr. Peppers be heading to Washington?
Jabrill Peppers reportedly met with members of the Washington Redskins’ front office last weekend for a workout and dinner, including team president Bruce Allen. The Redskins have the No. 17 overall pick in Thursday night’s NFL Draft.

Peppers, who is expected to play safety in the NFL, is considered a borderline first-round pick by many analysts, but his stock took a hit on Monday when it was reported he had a diluted sample during his NFL Combine drug test. It was an issue Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh declined to comment on during his team’s trip to Italy.
Could the Redskins take a chance on the former Michigan star at No. 17? Or would they consider trading back and picking Peppers later in the first round?
Either way, there appears to be strong interest in Peppers from the Redskins. And there will be strong interest from fans wherever Peppers goes.
