Jaycee Horn – Carolina Panthers CB

After a frustrating rookie campaign that ended cruelly after 2.5 games, Jaycee Horn will be looking to make people sit up and take notice in 2022. The cornerback looked like a shutdown presence at the position and a foundational piece for the Carolina Panthers, but a broken foot in Week 3 at the Houston Texans brought this positive momentum to an abrupt halt.

Horn has been looking the part in no uncertain terms throughout early offseason workouts and judging by the videos on social media, the South Carolina product is ready to roll. The Panthers were never quite the same on defense without him, so his reintroduction is sure to give everyone a massive lift.

The No. 8 overall selection in 2021 has exceptional size, length, and athleticism. This is matched by out-of-this-world footwork and supreme ball skills for good measure.


Expectations could not be higher for Horn, who’ll be working with new defensive backs coach Steve Wilks and going up against stud wide receiver D.J. Moore in training camp to ready himself for the upcoming season.

Iron sharpens iron.

Providing there are no further complications on the health front, Horn will be one of the camp’s stars for a second-straight year. This could also lead to the player taking the league by storm, too.
