The Steelers selected Layne in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 83rd overall.
ANALYSIS
Layne picked up hype as a potential high second-round pick in the days leading up to the draft, so for him to fall to Pittsburgh this late in the third round looks like a steal at first blush. The Steelers need corners that possess physicality and the ability to pounce in zone looks, and Layne appears uniquely qualified for such tasks. At 6-foot-2, 192 pounds and with long arms, he projects as a standout jam threat, and the combination of his 4.50-second 40, 37.5-inch vertical, and 134-inch broad jump demonstrates plus linear explosiveness. Layne only switched from receiver to corner just before his 2016 freshman season, yet he earned a meaningful role for Michigan State during that campaign before playing a starring role the last two seasons. He won't play ahead of Joe Haden or Steven Nelson this year, but he could be the long-term heir to either role.
