Year 1: 3 games | 1 interception | 1 pass defense | 5 tackles
I fell asleep when Horn’s 2021 season ended in Week 3 with a foot injury. Up until that point, he had looked smooth and comfortable, and his production proved it. On 69 coverage snaps over three games, Horn allowed two catches for 18 yards and had one INT, according to Next Gen Stats. Going into this season healthy with a dawg mentality, he’s ready to pick up where he left off. I’ve watched him practice this offseason and in training camp, and his competitiveness is off the charts. He fights in every practice, drill and game and honestly, that tenacity reminds me of how I used to play. (Maybe that’s why I like him so much.) As great as Surtain was last season, we have to remember that Horn was the first cornerback to come out of the draft and was selected eighth overall by Carolina. These two types are 1A and 1B. Horn, the son of former 12-year NFL wide receiver and four-time Pro Bowler Joe Horn, is well on his way to becoming a top player, and that starts with weekly coverage of the No. 1 receivers in the NFC South this fall.
