That leaves just three more rookies for Carolina to sign to wrap up their draft class.
Horn, 21, three-year starter at South Carolina and a second-team All SEC selection as a junior. He did opt out of the 2020 season after seven games. The Panthers drafted Horn with the No. 8 overall pick.
Horn is projected to sign a four-year, $21,112,145 contract with the Panthers that includes a $12,714,287 signing bonus. The Panthers will have a fifth-year option to pick up on him in 2024.

During his college career at South Carolina, Horn recorded 101 tackles, two interceptions, two forced fumbles, and 23 passes defended.
