The son of former NFL WR Joe Horn, Jacee has the pedigree and is a late riser on our board. He is a solid cover corner, can play zone and press. He has needed to improve his tackling.
Other Considerations If Available:
South Carolina CB Jaycee Horn or Northwestern OT Rashawn Slater or Virginia Tech OT Christian Darrisaw or Alabama OT Alex Leatherwood or Trade Back
The 49'ers have many needs starting in their secondary, where they may need to replace Richard Sherman, Jason Verrett, and K’Waun Williams to free agency. They also need to consider the future at QB as many believe that Jimmy G is not the answer. The 49ers could trade up or even trade back depending on the free-agent decisions in their secondary. If they go QB in the 12th spot, they could go with Kyle Trask or Trey Lance. In our first mock draft back in January, we had the 49ers going with the best available WR at the time (Ja'Marr Chase). Chase will not be falling to the 49'ers in this spot, and because this mock does not have trades, we go with the safe pick in VA Tech CB Caleb Farley.
