Height: 6-3   Weight: 238   Age: 24

Born: 12/12/1994 Pinson , AL

College: Vanderbilt

Experience: 3rd season

High School: Pinson Valley HS [Pinson, AL]









Draft 2017

Pick No.57

Selected By: Houston Texans

Round: 2

Pick (Overall): 25 (57)

Pick Analysis: Alabama may have overlooked Cunningham in the recruiting process due to his lean frame (he had 194 tackles, 41 for loss, 12 sacks as the state's 5A Lineman of the Year in 2012), but NFL scouts won't. He started the final five games of the year for the Commodores as a redshirt freshman (67 tackles, 6.5 TFL, 1.5), and then starting the final nine in 2015, eventually leading the team in tackles for loss (16.5) and forced fumbles (four) in a first-team All-SEC effort. Cunningham led Vandy with 125 tackles in another first-team all-conference season, with 16.5 tackles for loss. He also garnered first-team Associated Press All-American honors as a junior, proving his explosion on the national college football scene.
