Non-QBs the Chicago Bears should trade up for: CB Jaycee Horn, South Carolina

The most puzzling position right now for the Bears has to be at cornerback. It’s been an emotional rollercoaster for Bears fans this offseason, too, as we’ve seen the team let go of a couple.

Chicago started by cutting starting nickel Buster Skrine, which wasn’t the biggest deal. Skrine was replaceable, anyway. However, when the Bears parted ways with Kyle Fuller, that’s when the panic set in. What on earth is Pace doing?

Signing Desmond Trufant to take Fuller’s place wasn’t exactly “solidifying” the position either. If anything, the Bears now have two starting corners who have injury concerns.

The argument for the draft’s top cornerback is a fiery one, with names like Caleb Farley, Patrick Surtain Jr. and Jaycee Horn topping that list. If the Bears have the chance to move up just a couple of picks and get Horn, they should do it.

Horn is a 6-foot-1 corner with great size and physicality off the line of scrimmage. He has experience playing both in the slot and outside, therefore he may be able to come in and start at nickel to begin with. Chances are, he will get his opportunity on the outside at some point during the season.

Overall, Horn is a great athlete. He has all the physical tools you want to see in a starting cornerback. He may have to work on not being overly aggressive at times, but aside from that, he projects well as a pro cornerback and the Bears would be lucky to land him.
