Round 1 - Carolina Panthers Select CB Jaycee Horn


Recommended Posts

Fields there, Slater there.....and then we pick Horn. 

Ooof. Well, he better be a top 10 CB  by the time his rookie deal is up, otherwise......woof.

I was excited about this draft. Now I am just nervous.

I think we can address OL later in the draft.

The haunting, sad cry of the Carolina Crow:

"I think we can address OL later in the draft."

So Fit and Rhule said there was a QB they really liked, they were open to drafting if he was on the board---was that Lance then? I dont't think Horn would be who Tepper was banging on the table for. I said it before, "I like Horn, but not at 8." And especially not with Fields (and Slater, D. Smith-even Jones) still available. 

Someone said earlier they can't wait for the explanation. I second that.

People complain that our DBs suck every year... complain when we spend a 1st round pick on improving it.

Jaycee Horn is a damn good player.  I slightly prefer Surtain but ya'll hating on this pick overrating

Love you Verge but I am salty as fug with taking Horn there.  I should be a gentleman but hard right now.

It's alright bro, take it in pace. Horn is a good pick, believe me, he grades a little lower than Ramsay. Our secondary is awesome now!

Haven’t had a legit secondary in a long time either.

A legit secondary doesn't win anything.  Elite lines and elite QBs do.  The rest of it is window dressing.  CB is a complimentary pick for a team that is already loaded and needs a push to take the next step.  It should never be a #8 pick for team that is rebuilding. What a total waste.

The thing that really sucks is that Marty put us in this position with signing Shaq and letting bradberry walk. We needed a corner desperately with the receivers in the NFCS. I think Horn is gonna be a baller and some of y’all will eat crow just as far as him as a player. The only thing that will make this sting is if fields becomes a franchise qb. Because that position trumps every other position.

Fans think Horn is going to come in and lock receivers down like Dion Sanders. LOL. It's 2021. Your CBs only look decent if you're passing game and pass rush are on point. Otherwise you're in for hell on Earth watching your #8 pick CB get roasted in the 4th.

He was going to Dallas if we traded back.

I think some of this is I wanted Surtain and feel like we wasted a season to get a mediocre cornerback, but I don’t bat 1.000 and hope this dude comes in and kicks ass.

Realistically, neither corner (or most any corner) is going to do that as a rookie. I was hoping for a trade down as soon as Sewell fell. But since we wanted Horn so bad, we got him.

Don’t get me wrong, I hope Horn does a great job. I’m just not convinced he will and I get the feeling this will set us back.

I just sit on my ass on the sofa and watch games, so WTF do I know. I'm not a draft guru or player evaluation expert. If they think he is what they need, then so be it. I'm sure they realize that the Oline needs work. They still have the whole draft left to address it.
