Strengths 

Cunningham plays with a strong level of agility, speed, and explosiveness. He is a great scrambler and can thrive with systems that have both RPO's along with play action plays. Processes smooth mechanics and can release the football quickly which helps his delivery throwing the ball. He is accurate when throwing the ball short, intermediate and even deep down the field. He does not have a rocket arm, but has solid arm strength. Plays with a competitive drive and is a great leader. He has had a solid level of production at Louisville and can improvise quickly. He has great instincts and can make adjustments before the ball is snapped.

Weaknessess

Could do better avoiding pressure as he takes a lot of hits at the college level. Especially as durability was a concern dealing with a lot of injuries last season. His ball placement can be inconsistent at times, but he has the ability to make a big play. However last season he showed signs of regression as he was very inaccurate throwing deeper balls. Must improve with his footwork as it can get very sloppy most of the time and is not the most poise in the pocket. He does not have good field vision and can miss opportunities.

I have Cunningham as a late 2nd/3rd/Early 4th round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.

Cunningham is very competitive as he is a great leader and has a solid level of production through is time in Louisville. He is not the most poise in the pocket, but does a great job with the way he improvises to keep the drive going and to make a play.

Cunningham needs to improve with his field vision as he has a habit of reading defenses poorly. His decision making is impacted with his bad field vision, but he can make smart decisions with the football. The thing that is a big benefit is that he has great instincts and can make adjustments before the ball is snapped.
