Michigan junior Jabrill Peppers, who captivated the country with his dynamism and versatility on his way to becoming a Heisman Trophy finalist this season, told Sports Illustrated on Tuesday hes leaving Michigan to declare for the NFL draft. Peppers projects as a safety and return specialist in the NFL, where hes expected to be a first-round pick.

Peppers earned the reputation as one of the elite players in college football in 2016 after switching from defensive back to a hybrid safety/linebacker. According to Michigan, Peppers lined up in 15 different positions on his 933 snaps this season, including quarterback, tailback and receiver. On defense he also logged time at nickelback, safety and cornerback. He also led the Big Ten in punt return yards and averaged four more yards per return than any other player in the league (minimum 10 returns).
