Projected Round
First-year starter who transferred from Georgia after the 2014 season and moved from receiver to cornerback. Named First Team All-Southland in 2016 after finishing tied for fifth in FCS with six interceptions and recording 43 tackles and seven pass breakups. Averaged 11.7 yards per punt return, which ranked 12th in FCS. Started three games in 2015 and made 21 tackles with one interception and 11 pass breakups.
Athletic cornerback with a developing game. Quick flipping his hips transitioning off the line, displays a closing burst and nicely adjusts in the air to defend the pass or make the interception. Effective facing the action, breaks down well and is rarely challenged by opposing quarterbacks. Works to get off blocks then makes his way up the field to defend running plays or screen passes.
Lacks footwork moving in reverse and tends to side shuffle down the field. Possesses questionable instincts and is slow to recognize plays. Struggled during Senior Bowl practices.
Formerly a receiver, Langley has developed at the speed of light since switching to cornerback and offers tremendous upside. He must improve his fundamentals and may need to be placed in a system where he faces the action, but he’s a solid prospect with next-level skills.
