FOXBORO — Florida defensive end Jermaine Cunningham is the pick for the Patriots at No. 53. The 6-foot-3, 266-pound Cunningham figures to be an outside linebacker in the Patriots’ 3-4. In four years at Florida, Cunningham had 33 tackles for losses and 18.5 sacks.
Cunningham has off-the-field issues, as he was arrested back in December of ’07 for attacking a restaurant employee after being told he had to pay for a bag of chips. A quadriceps strain kept him from working out at the Combine or Florida’s Pro Day.
