It’s time the Philadelphia Eagles make a big investment into their defense.

Our expert analysis on South Carolina cornerback Jaycee Horn is he is very, very good. Simple enough right? The Eagles front office can not overthink this at all. If one of the top-two corners is available with the twelfth pick, they need to pounce. Horn has the skillset and physical traits to be the best corner in the National Football League.

The Eagles are still in dire need of cornerback help, despite trading for Darius Slay in 2020. Landing the South Carolina product would give them an excellent partner for Slay, as well as a guy who could be the top choice in a year or two.

A dominant force in the passing game, Horn has the coverage ability to get excited about. He has great hip movement and can turn and run with anyone. He has great vision and seems to diagnose an offense quickly. As good as he is against the pass, he may be better in the run game. A violent hitter, Horn looks for contact and loves to lay the wood of wideouts.

The Eagles could use a player like that moving forward.
