Cunningham was undervalued most of his career, but set several school records in 2011 as a senior. Unsung star of the team. Cunningham's lack of overall speed and explosiveness are question marks, but he is a reliable possession player with vacuum hands.
Positives: Good-sized body with thickness throughout his frame. Has very good hand-eye coordination with strong hands and focus to make catches away from his body with ease -- nice job tracking and adjusting to passes. Has fluid body control and attacks the ball. Possesses very good field awareness and balance to set up his routes. Savvy, mature, consistently productive four-year starter.
Negatives: Not a consistent vertical threat and is more of a one-speed athlete with some obvious body stiffness. Lacks many explosive traits, and his downfield acceleration is subpar. Struggles to separate on a consistent basis.
