Cunningham, Rolle finally get their chance

Florida DE Jermaine Cunningham, who missed the combine and the Gators’ pro day due to a shoulder injury, worked out for scouts at the school’s practice field on April 7.

A total of 12 teams were in attendance, including positional coaches from the Ravens, Buccaneers, Rams, Dolphins, Steelers and Vikings.

Cunningham (6-foot-3 3/8, 268 pounds) ran the 40 in 4.89 and 4.99, but fell at the end of the second attempt and seemed a little off the rest of the workout.

He finished with a 35-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot, 10-inch broad jump. He kept his short shuttle, three-cone drill and bench press numbers from the combine.

Also in Florida yesterday, Florida State safety Myron Rolle worked out in Orlando after choosing not to work out at Florida State’s pro day on March 19.

Rolle ran the 40-yard dash in 4.61 and 4.66 seconds. He kept the rest of his numbers from the combine, which included 21 bench press repititions at 225 pounds — good for sixth best among all safeties at the combine.

A year removed from his playing career at Florida State, Rolle chose to bypass last year’s draft for a chance to accept a Rhodes Scholarship and study at Oxford in England.

He was productive during his college career, however, finishing with 7.5 tackles for loss, 12 passes defensed, one forced fumble and an interception.
