This pick doesn’t make sense
We are now exactly one week away from the start of the 2021 NFL Draft.
Peter Schrager of the NFL Network has released his latest mock draft and he has the New York Giants using the 11th overall pick on South Carolina cornerback Jaycee Horn.
Round 1, Pick 11: New York Giants – Jaycee Horn, cornerback, South Carolina
Don’t be shocked if the Giants go cornerback here. Yes, they have Adoree’ Jackson and James Bradberry on the roster, but you can never have enough top-level CBs. Horn is viewed as just that. Giants fans may bristle at the team taking a corner over a WR, OT or pass rusher — but I would not be surprised at all if it’s Patrick Surtain or Horn.
Horn wouldn’t be a bad pick, but he is a bit of a reach at 11. Not to mention that both Devonta Smith and Rashawn Salter were on the board. I don’t think the Giants would take him over those two.
If the Giants want to take a corner in the first round they would be better off trading down.
