On January 10, 2017, it was announced that Langi had accepted an invitation to appear in the Reese's Senior Bowl. On January 28, 2017, Langi attended the 2017 Senior Bowl and recorded three combined tackles and made the game-winning interception to help the South defeat the North 16-15. His game-winning interception came on a two-point conversion after a North touchdown. Pitt's Nathan Peterman's pass ricocheted off a defender and Langi ended up with the interception to seal the victory. He attended the NFL Combine, but was only able to perform the bench press, vertical jump, and broad jump due to an injured hamstring. On March 24, 2017, he participated at BYU's pro day, along with teammates Jamaal Williams, Taysom Hill, Kai Nacua, and 14 others. Team representatives and scouts from 26 NFL teams attended as Langi performed the 40-yard dash, 20-yard dash, 10-yard dash, short shuttle, and three-cone drill. Langi also performed positional drills, but opted to stand on his combine performance in the broad, vertical, and bench. He was projected to go as early as the fourth or fifth round, as late as the seventh, or become an undrafted free agent. Langi was ranked as the 13th best inside linebacker prospect in the draft by NFLDraftScout.com.

On April 30, 2017, the New England Patriots signed Langi to a three-year, $1.68 million contract after he went undrafted in the 2017 NFL Draft. The contract also includes a signing bonus of $15,000 and $100,000 guaranteed. Langi received more guaranteed money than the average sixth round pick and is on par with the average of a fifth round pick. The Patriots paid this amount mainly due to them only owning four draft picks and Langi being a highly sought after undrafted free agent who received 12 offers.
He competed with David Harris, Elandon Roberts, and Trevor Bates throughout training camp for the starting middle linebacker job. He was one of four undrafted free agents to survive final cuts and make the 53-man roster. Head coach Bill Belichick named Langi the third middle linebacker on the Patriots' depth chart, behind veterans Elandon Roberts and David Harris, to start his rookie season.
On September 17, 2017, Langi made his professional regular season debut at the New Orleans Saints and made his first career tackle in their 36-20 victory. On October 25, 2017, Langi was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list due to the injuries suffered in a serious car crash weeks prior. The Patriots made it to Super Bowl LII, but the team lost 41-33 to the Philadelphia Eagles.
On September 1, 2018, Langi was released as part of the roster cutdown.
On October 13, 2017, Langi and his wife, Cassidy, were rear-ended at a stop light and were both seriously injured. The driver, Kevin M. Conroy, was later charged with felony possession of a Class E substance, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, possession of an open container or alcohol, and a marked lane violation. The Foxborough police found three different prescription drugs in the vehicle, including a pain killer, antipsychotic, and a muscle relaxant. Conroy and his passenger were uninjured when they rear-ended Langi's car while going 50 mph in an accident that pinned Langi's vehicle between Conroy's Jeep and the car in front. The accident also caused injuries to three people in a car in front of Langi. Langi suffered injuries to his head, neck, and back while his wife Cassidy broke both hips and multiple ribs. Conroy passed a breathalyzer and claimed all the medications were prescribed.
