Florida defensive lineman Jermaine Cunningham was chosen with the 53d pick overall. He likely projects as an outside linebacker in the Patriots' 3-4 defensive scheme.
Cunningham's sack production was decent at Florida, with 19.5 in his final three years as a Gator. He came in measuring a little over 6-foot-3 and 266 pounds at the combine, and is said to have good athletic ability and instincts, but has some problems bending, coming off blocks and playing in space.
