Justin Layne - CB

CB Justin Layne NFL Draft Profile - Michigan State

Layne is the youngest guy in this years draft, does it matter?

Justin Layne

Michigan State

Class Year: Junior
DOB - 1/15/1998
Height - 6'3" Weight - 190 lbs
Twitter: @/_jlayne
Combine Results:
40 Yard Dash – 4.50 seconds
Vertical Jump – 37.5 Inches
Broad Jump – 134.0 Inches
3 Cone Drill – 6.9 Seconds


Layne was a WR recruit when he arrived at Michigan State, he transitioned nicely into a shutdown corner. He shows the right physical traits and has a good read of the game to excel at the pro level. Leaves a little to be desired as he continues to grow in his role. Has proportionate length and good use of the hands. Best used in man or press coverage.


Needs work on zone coverage and to develop space and route awareness. Doesn’t transition well and can sometimes get caught up in the wrong spot on the field. Can give up soft receptions from this. Needs to continue to grow but has all the right making of a good pro player.

Overall Review:

He has just turned 20 and will be one of the youngest guys in the class. Needs time to develop.

Look for him as high as of late 2nd round or as low as the late 5th round.
