Michigan’s Jabrill Peppers and Jourdan Lewis, and Western Michigan’s Corey Davis, have been named to the midseason All-American team by Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports.

Peppers, among the leading candidates for the Heisman Trophy, made the team as an all-purpose player.

“He does EVERYTHING for Michigan and even has Jim Harbaugh evoking the name Jim Thorpe,” Feldman says.

Peppers is second on Michigan’s team with 38 tackles. He also has 10 tackles for loss and six quarterback hurries, both team-highs. He has 442 all-purpose yards, including 249 on punt returns, 95 on kickoff returns and 98 rushing.

Lewis, a cornerback, “has not only produced one of the highlights of the season with his dazzling off-balance INT (against Wisconsin), but according to PFF (Pro Football Focus), he’s also allowed only two catches for just seven yards on the 10 times he’s been targeted this season after missing the first couple of games with a hamstring injury,” Feldman wrote.

Feldman calls Davis “the best player on a 7-0 Western Michigan team.” He has 44 catches for 652 yards (93.1 yards per game) and 10 TD.
