Jaycee Horn

Height: 6’1″

Weight: 205 lbs

Strengths: The son of former NFL wide receiver Joe Horn, Jaycee Horn inherited some of the attitude on the field that his father played with. Horn is a dog in press coverage. Has great size and length to excel in both man coverage and the Seattle Cover 3. Does a solid job of being physical with receivers at the line of scrimmage. When in man coverage, he has a knack for staying in the hip pocket of the receiver. Ball skills are no issue for Horn with 23 passes defended in 3 seasons. While he is aggressive, Horn tends to stay patient and reacts to the receiver. Stays on his heels so he can explode to make a play on the ball. Displays great recovery speed when he does get a little too aggressive.

Weaknesses: Doesn’t possess great footspeed on film. While he has relatively fluid hips, his feet take some time to catch up as agility is a concern for him. His aggressive nature can get the best of him at times, as Horn can be a little jumpy on routes and bite on fakes. Is willing in run support but doesn’t have great tackling form. His physicality leads to him being grabby which will lead to more holding penalties.

Jaycee Horn is one of my favorite players in this draft. His pit-bull like mentality will serve him well in both man and zone coverage. He could be a target for the Minnesota Vikings in round one. Mike Zimmer loves his corners and the attitude and physicality I believe will resonate heavily with the head coach.
