CLEVELAND (WGHP) — The Carolina Panthers have selected cornerback Jaycee Horn with the eighth pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Horn played college ball for the South Carolina Gamecocks.

Horn’s father, Joe Horn, played wide receiver in the NFL in the 1990s and 2000s and was a four-time Pro Bowler.

The Panthers recently traded quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to the Denver Broncos.

It is unclear if the trade signals that newly acquired quarterback Sam Darnold will be a lock as the starter in the 2021 season.
