2. Zach Cunningham, Vanderbilt (6-4, 230) — Film Grade: 83.0
Quick Take: Cunningham is a freak athlete with dynamic playmaking ability. At times, he can take over games. He also has the frame to add weight without losing speed and quickness. However, Cunningham is a bit of a boom or bust prospect. While some of his film is flat-out impressive, he’s also had a handful of games that look near disastrous. Missed tackles and over-pursuing run fits can plague his game. He gets a bit sloppy with his technique, especially in the open field. However, it’s his rare athleticism, speed, and ability in coverage that will get scouts excited. His ceiling is really high, which could see him go late in the first round.
