Sudden mover with great cod, click and close and top end speed. Good tackler who finds a way to get you down. Comfortable in man and off, in the box or single high. Flashes ability to beat up guys in press man. Elite return man.Great character and leader on and off the field.
Gets lost in man with his back to the ball. Takes false steps in space. Tackling has improved but still doesn't break down consistently. Didn't get his hands on the ball enough.
Peppers is polarizing. Elite physical tools with a big personality but didn't make a ton of difference making plays. Competed as a CB but hardly locked up anyone. Blazes around the field but isn't a lights out tackler. Flipped through positions not mastering any. All that said...he plays at a different speed and shows physicality and passion. He's a high end coach's project that could turn in a long productive career.
