Arizona Cardinals safety Budda Baker couldn’t help but call out a PFF employee for his atrocious take on Jaycee Horn.
PFF is a popular football company that provides all types of services, but it most well-known for their player grades. It certainly wouldn’t be the first time an NFL player criticized the website.
Normally, the site comes under fire for their method of player evaluation. However this time, it was a segment of a podcast that caught Budda Baker’s eye.
PFF’s Sam Monson said he doesn’t believe Jaycee should be a first rounder and that he’s “not in the conversation” to be CB1 in the upcoming draft. To say the least, it’s a controversial opinion for obvious reasons.
Responding to PFF on Twitter, Baker said, “Bro i need to somehow get off PFF. I don’t even want them to grade me lol.. they don’t even know what position i play or the defenses we really in.”

Will Jaycee Horn Be a First Round Pick?
The simple answer to this question is, unless something significant occurs between now and draft day, 100% yes. The Gamecocks CB has been one the top defensive prospects coming into this draft for a while now, and his Pro Day only helped his stock.
Virtually every mock draft has him going in the first round. Some have him going as early as top 10, even ahead of Bama’s Patrick Surtain.
Of course, one can question his NFL readiness as Sam Monson did. However, this game can be played for practically every player entering the draft.
As of right now, Jaycee Horn looks like he’ll be star in the big leagues, continuing his father’s legacy.
