Jaycee Horn (28:00) and Asante Samuel Jr. (59:00) are both top cornerback prospects in this year's draft class whose dads were perennial Pro Bowl players. But they also have their own unique journeys that we attempt to share on this show. Before we get to our guests, co-hosts Patrick Peterson and Bryant McFadden chop it up on the pre-draft workouts (1:30). After not stepping on a scale for months, P2 was SHOCKED when they called out his weight at the combine. 'Has Pat Heard?' tests Pat on a recent NFL trade, some ink for his former coach, jersey number news and the Masters (10:45). '21 Questions' puts BMac on the spot to deliver his best CB in the 2021 NFL Draft (21:45). Then, we expand our secondary!
Jaycee Horn did have a famous dad (Joe) that played in the NFL, but he has more than made a name for himself during college at South Carolina and throughout the draft process. On this episode, the CB prospect joins co-hosts and fellow corners Patrick Peterson and Bryant McFadden to discuss his journey (28:00). Jaycee explains how he has tried to emulate Pat P over the years, his first football memories and his dad's famous cell phone celebration video. He also covers his recruiting process which included a switch from Tennessee to the Gamecocks, stepping in as a freshman starter in the SEC and his recent Pro Day performance. Horn firmly believes he's not only the best cornerback in this class, but the best defensive player as well. BMac has studied Jaycee and gives an extensive breakdown of his game as the guys then share tricks that he'll be able to use at the next level. Finally, Superlatives!
Asante Samuel Jr. carries the name of a former All-Pro corner but is trying to carve his own path at the same position in the NFL. The prospect out of Florida State joins Patrick Peterson and Bryant McFadden to discuss that path (59:00). Asante describes what it was like having a dad in the league and how playing high school at St. Thomas Aquinas prepared him for college at FSU. We also learn in what areas he's trying to improve his game as Pat and BMac dish out more defensive back tips. Samuel Jr. breaks down his draft expectations and the teams he has been getting a good vibe from before finishing with Superlatives!
