BEREA, Ohio--The Browns are hoping that Jabril Peppers can help jump start the Browns defense in a similar way that he did at Michigan.
Peppers was asked to describe himself as a football player.
"I'm a hard worker," Peppers said. "I'm competitive in anything. I probably hate losing more than I like winning. I'm a tenacious kid, very smart and I'm a guy who's going to leave it all out there for the team and the fans, as well."
The Browns used the 25th overall pick on Peppers after trading down from 12 with the Texans. He's expected to be used in several phases of the game, but he is the favorite to open the season as the starting strong safety.
Myles Garrett is excited to work with Peppers on defense and hopes the duo can make a big difference.
“I was excited," about Peppers being drafted by the Browns. "I know he can play ball. I have seen him make many big time plays against great opponents. I know that he can really help us.”
Peppers thinks he and Garrett can make a big difference for the Browns.
“It’s going to be a sight to see.”
