YOu mean "DBs"? Include safeties?

Good players from Vanderbilt can often get lost in the mix of strong front-7 options in the SEC, but linebacker Zach Cunningham deserves national attention.
The former four-star recruit has gained about 30 pounds since entering college while maintaining the athleticism that made him an attractive high school player. Still, Cunningham didn’t receive the big-time offers he probably deserved. Now at 6-foot-4 and 230 pounds, his size and athleticism compare favorably to the best SEC linebackers, and his on-field performance matches up just as well.https://www.profootballfocus.com/colleg ... -heard-of/
2) Zach Cunningham, Vanderbilt
Strengths: Cunningham's reputation as a tackling machine is well-known and that was easily evident on film.
There were times when it would seem he was racking up tackles on every play. His speed is his greatest asset,
and that helps him wrap up opponents from all over the field.
've seen some other online analysts that were not as happy with his tackling technique but I'm not overly concerned. The proof is on film. This man is going to make a ton of tackles. Cunningham isn't a one-dimensional player either. His coverage ability is excellent. Coaches were so confident in his skills that they would line him up out wide in man coverage against WRs/TEs. Full credit to Cunningham, he held his own in these situations.
I thought he was good against the run as well. You can see him shoot the open gaps and stop a runner immediately.http://www.musiccitymiracles.com/2017/2 ... oster-zachhttp://www.nfl.com/draft/2017/profiles/ ... id=2558094
