Cunningham was taken 183rd overall and set the Michigan State record for most career receptions with 218 for 3,086 yards and 25 touchdowns. As a senior for the Spartans, the 6-foot-2, 215-pound Cunningham caught 79 passes for 1,306 yards and 12 touchdowns and sees himself as a perfect fit for the type of offense the Dolphins will run under Head Coach Joe Philbin.
“I feel like my game is all around and I feel like I can bring physicalness at the receiver position,” Cunningham said. “I block well, I’ll go across the middle and I feel like I can extend to get the ball and I can adjust to the ball. I’m blessed to be in this situation and I can’t wait to get started.”
