Dolphins Take WR Cunningham In Sixth Round

Posted Apr 28, 2012

There is no telling if wide receiver B.J. Cunningham out of Michigan State was specifically targeted in the sixth round by the Miami Dolphins yesterday when they acquired San Diego’s sixth-round pick to allow the Chargers to move up, but he is now part of the mix.

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.”
