Areas to Improve:
Jephette is an aggressive player that displays natural instincts on the field. He has a good motor and puts himself in position to make plays. Physical player with good tackling technique as he shows the ability to break down and wrap up. Quicker than he is fast. Good at dipping his shoulder to slip blocks, but would like to see him use his hands more to disengage. Adding strength would help in this area. A bit raw in coverage. Smart player that gets the most out of his ability.
