PFF Sees Justin Layne As Answer To Steelers’ Cornerback Problems

Would you like to see the Pittsburgh Steelers solve their cornerback problems? Pro Football Focus believes they may now have the piece needed to do that in third-round pick Justin Layne out of Michigan State. Originally recruited to play there as a wide receiver, Layne converted to cornerback by the end of his freshman season, even starting games, and he grew in each of this three seasons there.

Daniel Rymer wrote about this topic recently for the outlet, noting that the team has only had four seasons by cornerback during their period of grading (from 2006) in which they graded out at 80.
