Jermaine Cunningham   #55 LB

Height: 6-3   Weight: 255   Age: 27

Born: 4/24/1988 Bronx , NY

College: Florida

Experience: 5th season

High School: Stephenson HS [Stone Mountain, GA]









Draft 2010

Pick No.53

Selected By: New England Patriots

Round: 2

Pick (Overall): 21 (53)

Pick Analysis: Cunningham was the Gators' most disruptive defender in 2009 and has great initial quickness and agility to make plays on the other side of the line of scrimmage. He doesn't have outstanding speed but is athletic enough to be a versatile defender as an outside linebacker or end at the next level. He is still developing his pass rush package but has the natural ability to be effective in the NFL. He lacks the bulk to be an effective take-on defender but is a high-motor player that should contribute on special teams and sub packages in his rookie season.
