“Layne started out his collegiate career as a wide receiver before being switched to cornerback. The junior totaled 72 tackles with 15 passes broken up and an interception in 2018. He recorded 40 tackles with eight breakups and an interception in 2017.”

Justin Layne is one of those players that reinforces the concept of the best DB’s should play WR for a year or so. It gives a DB more in depth knowledge of how to react to a WR. 

Who else do we know went that route before becoming an all pro? Yup, Richard Sherman went that route.
