Before transferring to Lamar, Langley spent his first two seasons at Georgia. Last season, he played in 10 games. He has also seen time as both a wide receiver and a returner.
Langley is known to be raw, but also a talented combination of size and speed. Listed at 6-foot-0, 201 pounds, he ran a 4.43 40-yard-dash at the scouting combine.
“B-Lang is one of those prototype NFL corners,” Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib told Mile High Sports. “He has size like myself. Those 6-foot-1, 205-pound corners, those are the kind of corners that the game is looking for right now. If he comes, and he puts that work in, he might get there.”
