Good luck throwing to Horton’s side of the field in 2017.
Our staff’s choice for the best cornerback in the Mountain West is Boise State’s Tyler Horton, the next in a line of highly regarded defensive backs who make opposing quarterbacks miserable on the blue turf and beyond.
The former three-star recruit stepped into the starting lineup last fall and made his opportunity count, returning his lone interception for an 85-yard touchdown and defending nine passes in all. Now a junior, Horton will lead a defensive backfield that has allowed fewer than 20 passing touchdowns every year since 2012 and has finished second in opponents’ quarterback rating the last two years.
