JERMAINE CUNNINGHAM: Florida, 6033 266 4.75. Three-year starter that played with his hand down but has the ability to play standing up over a tight end (Sam linebacker). Long arms and big hands. Good initial quickness from his stance to the opponent. Everything about this player is sudden - lateral quickness, foot quickness, and hand quickness. Can accelerate off a block and burst to the quarterback. Strong effort to rush the quarterback. Flexible enough to turn the corner low and flatten the edge. Then he accelerates to the ball. Makes plays once he gets up the field. Has the ability to go to a second move. Hands up in the pass rush. Consistent and tenacious pass rush effort every down. Will contribute on special teams coverage. Had 152 tackles, 34 for loss, 19 1/2 sacks, and 5 forced fumbles in his career. Did not work out at the Combine because of shoulder surgery. Third/fourth round. (A-33 3/4, H-10 3/8, BP-DNP, 10-DNP).
