B.J. Cunningham, WR, Michigan State

Cunningham leaves Michigan State as their all-time leader in receptions and yards. He's not the tallest or the fastest wideout, but Cunningham has a promising blend of talents that could eventually land him as a team's No. 2 on their depth chart.

Flashes some polish and versatility as a route runner although he slows down in his breaks. Needs to remain explosive and learn to cut sharper. Cunningham has a nice feel for reading zone defenses and finding the seams and open spots.

He lacks the straight line speed to attack defenses vertically. Sometimes gets chippy with defensive backs while running his route and instead needs to focus on his assignment. Cunningham is at his best when he explodes off the line and can work the middle of the field. Teams will really love his physicality and use of his hands as a blocker.

Cunningham is a solid mid-round talent who will likely begin contributing on special teams before earning more reps and snaps with the offense. He just has to commit to becoming a better route runner and improve his jump off the line.
