The Miami Dolphins came into the 2012 NFL Draft with a hole at the wide receiver position, and most people expecting them to target the position early on in the selections. Instead, the team grabbed their first wide out in the sixth round, bringing in Michigan State receiver B.J. Cunningham. While Cunningham will not be a speed threat receiver for Miami, his big body and route running ability could be valuable to a team that traded away Brandon Marshall this offseason.

What he brings: A polished receiver with strong hands and good body control, his lack of top-end speed and suddenness as a route runner brings up concerns about his ability to separate.


Bucky Brooks' take: Cunningham is an underrated pass catcher with skills. He is a good route runner with savvy and quickness and could make immediate contributions as a third or fourth receiver
