Jaycee Horn, University of 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 most of the time. Smartly, they let him walk in free agency after signing another former Giants cornerback in Janoris Jenkins last season.
Jenkins definitely proved better than Apple, but Jenkins is in his 10th year in the NFL. Because of that and their cap situation, they ended up releasing him. To replace him, 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 addition to the secondary.
