Jaycee Horn: Best Young Coverage CB in League?

It seems every week a young corner back is discussed and praised by various media entities, but our own Jaycee Horn is rarely ever mentioned in the same breath. As a biased Panthers fan this has rankled me, so I wanted to delve into the stats and see if he deserved to be mentioned among the best.

I compiled these stats from PFF and I believe it shows how undervalued our shut down corner truly is:

Not only is Horn the youngest player the bunch but his coverage numbers are staggering. He is hardly ever targeted but when he is, he gives up nothing. His passer rating against is tops in the league.

Jaycee's dominance is further demonstrated in this tweet by Michael Rimmer.

Just wanted to show this man the love he's earned.
