In 2018, he had 47 catches, 612 yards, and 8 touchdowns while also being a punt returner.
He earned 3rd-team All-Big ten honors as a receiver and punt returner.
He had 2 career punt returns for touchdowns.
According to NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein:
Former five-star and top-rated receiver coming out of high school, Peoples-Jones failed to find the success and production expected over his three seasons at Michigan. His route tempo is sluggish, but he has some savvy and shortcuts footwork for out-breaking routes to the boundary. He doesn’t run well enough to play outside in the pros but has decent tape as a big slot. His pro limitations go beyond Michigan’s spotty offense and he may not reach any higher than being an average backup.
This is #Browns new WR Donovan Peoples-Jones back in HS.
He was the #1 WR in the country and a freak athlete 😳
