First-round pick Jaycee Horn, Panthers agree to deal

The Carolina Panthers are set to sign 2021 first-round draft pick Jaycee Horn to his rookie contract worth $21.112 million.

All first-round draft picks receive a four-year contract with a team-held option for the fifth season.

The Panthers selected Horn with the eighth overall pick of the NFL Draft out of South Carolina. Horn, the son of four-time Pro Bowl wideout Joe Horn, is a cornerback and the first defensive player chosen in the draft.

Jaycee Horn, 21, had 16 tackles, two interceptions and six passes defensed in seven games last season for the Gamecocks. In his three-year career at South Carolina, he finished with 101 tackles, three sacks, two interceptions and 23 passes defensed in 30 games.
