PITTSBURGH (93.7 the Fan) – The final unsigned Steelers draft pick inked his entry level contract Thursday afternoon.  Third round pick Justin Layne agreed to a four year deal.

Layne was the 83rd overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft.  The 6’2” corner was a three-year starter at Michigan State and second team All-Big Ten in 2018.

The Cleveland native, who grew up a Browns fan, had 130 tackles, three interceptions, 24 passes defended, 4.5 tackles for loss and a half a sack in his college career.

“It’s great,” Layne said of getting used to being a Steeler.  “It was crazy at first.  The first couple of days it was like ‘oh shoot’.  But we are just working now, they are regular people now.  Just like back in college.”
