NFL rookies can often have growing pains, but that doesn’t appear to be the case for Jabrill Peppers.
The Cleveland Browns rookie and former Michigan star said having Jim Harbaugh as a college coach for the last two seasons has prepared him as well as anything for his first NFL training camp. “There’s nothing I wasn’t prepared for,” Peppers told Cleveland media members.
Jabrill Peppers says handling summer grind is habit. "I was fortunate to have Harbaugh as my coach. There's nothing I wasn't prepared for."

The 25th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, Peppers spent his final two seasons at Michigan playing for Harbaugh, who has an NFL background. Peppers, who was a Heisman finalist in 2016, lined up all over the field at Michigan. He’ll primarily play safety in the NFL.
Michigan had 11 players drafted in April. If they all share the same sentiment as Peppers, rookie camp shouldn’t be too bad.
