One big name is a player that screams consistency and that is the 6-foot-1 and 205 pound cornerback Jaycee Horn from South Carolina.
Their top pass rusher suffered a torn ACL in Week 2, their All-Pro defensive back has been sidelined for more than a month with a leg injury and myriad injuries to running backs mean they might have to lean on a rookie with little game experience.
