2021 NFL Draft: 16th pick

The NFC West is going to be loaded with intrigue at the quarterback position with the arrival of Matthew Stafford to the Los Angeles Rams.

Vance Joseph has actually done a pretty good job with the Cardinals’ defense since coming over from the Denver Broncos, but there is still work to be done, especially in the secondary.

The Cardinals, under Joseph, are a press-man team and Jaycee Horn has the type of physical, competitive, alpha style of play to be an absolute stud in this kind of defense.

Everyone is going to talk about Horn’s bloodlines — his father Joe played wide receiver for the Saints — but the most important aspect of that is what will hopefully be a great first touchdown celebration involving the ancient flip cell phone.

If you know, you know.

With Patrick Peterson slated for free agency and a number of veteran journeymen not expected back, cornerback has got to be arguably the Cardinals’ biggest offseason priority in 2021.

There is no doubt this offense is built to compete in the NFC West, but the defense is going to need talented pieces like Horn who can create turnovers and more opportunities for Kyler Murray.
