Thompson-Randle El Freshman of the Year: Jabrill Peppers, Michigan DB/KR/ATH

It is a bit funny that this award bares the name of Antwann Randle-El, who became a jack of a lot of trades after his days as a quarterback at Indiana were finished. This season, there is but one freshman that took the entire conference by storm on both sides of the football and that was Jabrill Peppers of Michigan.

He was such an important and athletic piece to the puzzle that he played nearly every skill position imaginable this season. Peppers ended the year averaging 11.4 yards per punt return, 27.8 yards per kick return, had two rushing touchdowns, eight receptions, 45 total tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss and 10 pass break ups.

Those are incredible numbers for a senior, let alone a redshirt freshman. Charles Woodson, eat your heart out?
