Jabrill Peppers is one of the more intriguing players at the NFL Combine. He has a lot of skill, as evidenced by the fact he was a Heisman finalist, but his size makes NFL evaluators wonder what position he’ll play in the league.
In order to help them in that process, Peppers will be working out with both the linebackers and the defensive backs Monday. He’ll compete in all the drills for both positions, which should give scouts plenty to watch as they analyze the hybrid player.
Let’s also not forget that Peterson likely is descended from slaves who suffered savage disciplinary beatings generation after genration after generation. It excuses nothing but also can’t be ignored. This is learned behavior.

A paragraph in an earlier version of Pete Dougherty’s column that included a reference to Peterson’s punishment of his 4-year-old son being connected to America’s history of slavery was removed. It was poorly reasoned and insensitive. We apologize to all readers who were offended.
