Biography

A seven-year NFL veteran as a player, Charlie Peprah enters his second season with the Packers’ player personnel department and first as a college scout in 2017. He joined the team in an official capacity on June 16, 2016, as a scouting assistant before being promoted to his current post in June 2017. Peprah also serves as the team’s National Football Scouting representative to the annual NFL Scouting Combine.

A former Packers safety, Peprah first entered the NFL ranks as a fifth-round selection (No. 158 overall) by the N.Y. Giants in the 2006 NFL Draft before he was claimed off waivers by Green Bay on September 3, 2006. After three years (2006-08) with the Packers, Peprah had a short stint in Atlanta (2009) before returning to Green Bay for the 2010 and 2011 seasons. He finished his career with the Dallas Cowboys in 2012.

During his first three years with the Packers, Peprah played primarily on special teams, totaling 22 coverage stops and forcing two fumbles on kickoff returns. He also recorded 10 tackles (eight solo) on defense in 37 regular-season games played (one start) from 2006-08.

Upon his return to Green Bay in 2010, Peprah played in 14 games with 11 starts and appeared in all four postseason contests with two starts. He registered 64 tackles (50 solo), seven passes defensed and two interceptions. Peprah also topped the secondary with 26 tackles (23 solo) in the postseason that year, 10 of which (nine solo) led the defense in the Super Bowl XLV win over Pittsburgh. 

Peprah’s strongest season came in 2011 when he started a career-high 14 games and made the start in the team’s lone postseason contest. His 96 tackles (80 solo), 14 pass breakups, five interceptions (one returned for a TD) and forced fumble on defense were all single-season career highs. Peprah ranked No. 4 in the NFL in 2011 with 147 yards on interception returns.

For his NFL career (2006-12), Peprah totaled 191 tackles (147 solo), 25 passes defensed and eight interceptions in 74 games (27 starts).

Collegiately, Peprah played in 50 games with 45 starts in his four-year career at Alabama. He finished his time with the Crimson Tide with 210 tackles (163 solo), 24 passes defensed, nine interceptions (two returned for TDs), five fumble recoveries and four forced fumbles.

Peprah holds a B.S. in business with a concentration in marketing from Alabama. 

Peprah was born Feb. 24, 1983, in Fort Worth, Texas. His grandfather, I.K. Acheampong, was a former head of state of the West African republic of Ghana, who came to power in a coup d’etat in 1972, ruled until 1977 and was executed in a revolution in 1979. The series of events prompted Charlie’s parents to emigrate first to Europe and then to the United States, where his father began attending school at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas. 

Peprah’s older brother, Kwabena, was a linebacker at Wyoming, while his younger brother, Josh, was a linebacker at Wisconsin.

Peprah currently lives in Dallas, Texas, with his wife, Kassi.
