Jabrill Peppers is a swiss army knife of a player
New York Giants’ safety Jabrill Peppers had a great season in 2020 and I would imagine that he will build off of that as Big Blue’s defense head into their second season under defensive coordinator Patrick Graham.
Peppers is a versatile player that can play deep in coverage or move into the box and play linebacker in certain packages. Not to mention he can also rush the passer if that’s what he’s asked to do.
Even with second-year safety Xavier McKinney entering his first full NFL season, I don’t think this will hurt Peppers’ snap count. If anything the Giants will use three safeties or I could see McKinney coming in for veteran Logan Ryan in certain situations.
In 2021 I think Peppers’ stats will be similar to what they were in 2020. I’m predicting that he will end up with 87 total tackles, two sacks, two interceptions and one forced fumble this coming season.
The reason I don’t see Peppers’ production going down is because I think he’s a perfect fit in Graham’s defense. Sometimes a player not performing at the level they need to is because of the system they’re in. Graham seems to know exactly how to use his players.
