Where exactly Michigan Swiss Army Knife Jabrill Peppers will go in the 2017 NFL Draft is up for debate, but there is no question about the man’s physical stature. Peppers is listed on Michigan’s website as 6-foot-1 and 205 pounds, but in person he’s almost certainly closer to 215. His stomach boasts an 8-pack. His arms are roughly the size of Arizona. And watching Peppers as he prepares for the NFL Combine next month at EXOS San Diego provides a display of peak human physicality.

From Dumbbell Rows to Pull-Ups with a weighted vest to hitting lightspeed on a Curve treadmill, observing Peppers working out can make people re-evaluate what they’re doing in the gym, and maybe even rethink their entire existence. Peppers, who has a penchant for getting after it with his shirt off, can dwarf even the strongest NFL prospect in terms of brute strength.
Whatever snags Peppers in the first round will be getting one of the most versatile players in this year’s draft, and a guy who will push his teammates to their physical limits in the weight room. Like one of EXOS’s trainers says, Jabrill is the “juice,” and when he’s on and getting after it as hard as he can, it’s impossible for the rest of the group not to follow.
