Jaycee Horn – DB – South Carolina
I don’t know if any of you Saints’ fans out there have ever heard the name ‘Joe Horn’ before. I am going to safely assume you have as he donned the black and gold from 2000-2006 with four Pro Bowl appearances. Well, meet his son, Jaycee.
The Saints grabbing Eli Apple was an experiment gone wrong. He lasted a short time with the team, was injured often, and frankly just wasn’t good. Smartly, they let him walk in free agency after signing another former Giants cornerback in Janoris Jenkins.
Jenkins is definitely better than Apple, but Jenkins is in his 9th year in the NFL. He is winding down his career and it is time that the Saints start looking for his replacement. They have to look no farther than the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
Through three years in college, Horn has 100 total tackles (6.0 for a loss), 3.0 sacks, two interceptions, 23 passes defended, and two forced fumbles in 29 games. Jaycee Horn would be a great complement to Marshon Lattimore for years.
