The player most connected to the Arizona Cardinals in recent mock drafts is South Carolina cornerback Jaycee Horn. The Cardinals have the 16th pick in the draft and have added no cornerbacks to their team with four hitting free agency.
Horn is considered one of the top three cornerbacks in this year’s draft class and he helped his draft stock with impressive physical and athletic numbers at his pro day.

Horn measured in at just under 6-foot-1 and weighed 205 pounds, giving him the length and frame to be great at the position in the pros.
He showed speed and explosiveness. His 40 time came in at 4.39 seconds. His vertical leap was 41.5 inches and his broad jump was 11-foot-1.
He added 19 225-lb reps of the bench press.
He has the size, speed, athleticism and strength a team would want from a cornerback. His tape is good, too.
Being the son of former NFL All-Pro receiver Joe Horn, he has the bloodlines.
The way things look, he might not even be available when the Cardinals pick at No. 16 in the draft.
