“Unlike most linebackers with his length, Cunningham shows good recognition and body control to slip cut blocks, as well, sprawling to maintain his balance and rarely losing sight of the ball.” –Rob Rang, @robrang (8/17/16)
A tall, long linebacker that is an intriguing prospect who will probably switch positions at the next level. Has played primarily inside, but looks more like an outside linebacker in a 4-3. Has the ability to fight through blocks, but not a powerful tackler. Much better suited to utilize his length and athleticism outside, perhaps as a three down linebacker on the outside.
