After taking the best defensive player in college football with the first0overall pick, the Cleveland Browns have decided to add to the same side, selecting Jabril Peppers with the 25th overall pick in the draft.

The Browns received the pick from the Houston Texans when Cleveland traded for QB Brock Osweiler earlier this offseason.
Though Peppers was a Heisman trophy finalist, questions remain about exactly what position he will play on the NFL level. Peppers also tested positive for a dilute sample during a drug test administered during the 2017 scouting combine.
Regardless, Peppers brings excitement and talent to a team which lacks in both of those categories, meaning some fans in Ohio will have no choice but to root for a Michigan guy.
