First Round

Comparison

Zach Cunningham Houston Texans

Thin, broad-shouldered, long-armed athlete. Needs to add bulk and mass, but length is rare. Really effective downhill tackler. Shoots gaps decisively and plays with quickness and burst. Has pass-rush versatility. Impacts throwing lanes with length. Testing numbers validate game speed that pops. Relies too much on long arms in space, which can get him off balance. Can get lost in coverage at times. May take some patience from a physical development standpoint. Will develop into an impact Power Five starter over time and has tools to become a first round NFL Draft pick.
