Jabrill Peppers and Corey Davis.

Those are two players to keep an eye on in this year’s 2017 NFL Scouting Combine, which takes place in Lucas Oil Stadium from Feb. 28 to March 6, 2017.

Both players played college football in the state of Michigan. Peppers for the University of Michigan and Davis for Western Michigan University.

Peppers has an intriguing storyline because of how many positions he played in college (at least 11 positions during his career). A good indication of what position he will play at the next level will come when everyone finds out what team will draft him. His main positions are safety, linebacker and kick/punt returner. Also, he is a freak athlete so his times at the combine should be exciting to watch.

When one thinks about MAC receivers, Antonio Brown is the mecca. While Davis doesn’t have the same build as Brown, he has the potential for a successful career in the NFL due to his route running and possession catch ability. Davis may align more with former Western Michigan receiver Greg Jennings.

Both players have been predicted to land in the first round of the draft by at least two analysts on nfl.com, which will only increase the number of eyeballs on their numbers produced at the combine.

Until the combine and draft roll around, here are some highlights from each of their collegiate careers.
