2021 NFL Draft Prospect: Jaycee Horn, CB, University of South Carolina
South Carolina has not had a cornerback as good as Jaycee Horn since Stephon Gilmore. The Gamecocks have a great cornerback in Horn, but he recently declared for the 2021 NFL Draft
Horn made his announcement to declare on November 16 the day after head coach Will Muschamp was fired. In 29 games over the past three years, Horn was a starter for the Gamecocks.
Horn has 101 career tackles in the past three years, and has also sacked opposing quarterbacks 3 times. He has 2 career interceptions in his career, but is loved for his physicality.
Horn has long arms, and stands at 6’1. He is very similar to Stephon Gilmore the former Gamecock who was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the first round. Jaycee loves to play the number 1 receiver of opposing teams which shows his competitive nature.
Horn may not be the fastest player, but he takes good angles to the ball, and does not shy away from contact.
NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes
When watching Horn, his playing ability is similar to Marlon Humphrey as they both are physical players with similar body types. Jaycee also plays a little bit like James Bradberry IV as they both like to get physical with receivers at the line of scrimmage and have a knack for undercutting routes. – Ryan Fernandez, NFL Draft Diamonds, Scout
