 Myron Cunningham, Arkansas, Player News


  The University of Arkansas football team has selected three defensive standouts and two offensive starters as team captains, including one repeat selection. Quarterback KJ Jefferson and offensive tackle Myron Cunningham were the picks on offense, while linebacker Grant Morgan and defensive backs Jalen Catalon and Joe Foucha were the defensive selections. The captains were announced by Coach Sam Pittman during Saturday's mock game at Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Morgan served as a team captain in 2020, while Cunningham was a captain for the final two games after tailback Rakeem Boyd opted out last season. Morgan and Cunningham are both seniors who accepted the extra year of eligibility extended by the NCAA due to the coronavirus pandemic. - Northwest Arkansas Times

  Jimmy Smith coaches running backs for the University of Arkansas, but as a former quarterback at Tennessee State he also has an acute awareness of what an offensive tackle means to that position. Specifically, Smith knows what left tackle Myron Cunningham means as the blindside protector for new starting quarterback KJ Jefferson. "Dependable," Smith said when asked for his thoughts on Cunningham's importance. "That's what you want. Dependable. "He's going to give you what you need every game, and you can rely on him. I played quarterback, so a guy like Myron is a big deal. "At left tackle, you need somebody you can rely on. He's a dependable guy. That's what he is."

Cunningham was so dependable last season that he played all 705 offensive snaps as well as 42 on special teams. He's also a big deal physically at 6-6 and 325 pounds. "Myron is a great, awesome player to me," said Jefferson, a redshirt sophomore with two career starts. "Protecting my blindside, I have no worries because he perfects the little details and even gets extra work. "He comes in and talks to me about different stuff and what he saw protection-wise and why he called this protection and what he wants to slide to." Cunningham, a fifth-year senior from Warren, Ohio, could be in an NFL training camp right now. Instead, he's back for his third season as a starter after also playing two seasons at Iowa Central Community College. "He turned down several hundreds of thousands of dollars, in my opinion," Razorbacks Coach Sam Pittman said at SEC Media Days last month. "We have a process, and it looked like he was going to go high in the middle rounds of the NFL Draft last year. "He elected to come back. That tells you something about our coaching staff. Not myself, about our assistant coaching staff." - Northwest Arkansas Times

  Cunningham is practicing this spring at 325-327 pounds, a weight he believes is going to benefit him in 2021. A transfer from Iowa Central Community College, he was listed at 290 pounds in his first season with the Razorbacks in 2019. Through 13 days of spring ball, Cunningham's focuses have been his hand placement, his eyes and reading the defense pre-snap. His footwork at 325 pounds has been a point of emphasis, too. "I've gotten used to it, I feel like," he said. "I feel like it's only going to help me being at that weight this season...I've got to get back to just moving quick like I used to, but that's about it." Defensive end Zach Williams has noticed Cunningham, who has made 20 starts in two seasons with the Razorbacks, improving his play with his hands. "You've got to make sure you get correct hand placement with him, because if not he'll just grab on to you," Williams said. "He's a big boy. There's no way of getting off of that. "I think the best thing with him is his hands. He's pretty good with them." - Northwest Arkansas Times

  Arkansas' Red-White spring football game is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. on April 17 at Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The scrimmage will be streamed on SEC Network-Plus, it was announced Wednesday. With the exception of Alabama, whose spring game will be shown on ESPN, the spring games for SEC programs will only be available via an Internet stream this year. Games have traditionally been shown on ESPN-affiliated networks for the past several years. This year's spring game will be the first for second-year Arkansas football coach Sam Pittman. Last year's spring practices were canceled due to the outbreak of covid-19. - Northwest Arkansas Times

  Senior offensive tackle Myron Cunningham - who said Monday he was returning for a senior season, his third at Arkansas - had applied for feedback from the NFL Draft Advisory Board. "It was kind of a stressful process," Cunningham said. "But the feedback I got from the NFL was probably like mid-to-late draft, so I just felt like it's in my best interest to come back and try to increase my draft stock next year." He was asked what advice he was given to improve himself for the 2022 NFL Draft.

"One of them is just working on, obviously I put on this weight, and just another year showing them I can move well and fluid with it," he said. He said position coach Brad Davis and Coach Sam Pittman, both considered offensive line gurus, can help him with the finer points and knowledge of the game. "This year they came with the whole O-line, not just me, more than we've learned in the past, and I think it has just been a great aspect to us," he said. - Northwest Arkansas Times

  Arkansas grad transfer Xavier Kelly has an appreciation for the work of the Arkansas offensive linemen, particularly one of the guys he faces a lot, left tackle Myron Cunningham. When asked who stood out to him on the Razorback offensive front, Kelly said, "I would say definitely Myron. He's a great offensive lineman. He's really good. We make each other better. He plays on my side at times and we definitely make each other better." Cunningham, who is now 6-6, 325 pounds after adding 20-plus pounds in the offseason, said he's comfortable with his game.

"My confidence is high," Cunningham said earlier in camp. "I had a good year last year. I put on weight to help me have a better year this year. My expectations are high, my confidence is high. I've got nothing to lose." Cunningham said he's noticed strength gains while putting on pounds. "I definitely got stronger since then, a lot stronger, and especially it helps," he said. "I know [Sam] Pittman's referenced it before about sitting on the bull rush and pass pro. It definitely helps. It makes a big difference in run blocking." - Northwest Arkansas Times

  A redshirt senior left tackle entering his second season with the Razorbacks after a stint at Iowa Central Community College, Cunningham played between 290-295 pounds last fall. But he was one of the biggest winners on Arkansas' offensive line in terms of positive weight gains this spring and summer. On the team's updated roster, Cunningham is listed at 325 pounds. He and sophomore Ricky Stromberg have both noted that 328 pounds would probably be more accurate two weeks into the preseason. "I've kind of gotten used to it," Cunningham said of his weight Monday during a Zoom conference with reporters. "I'm still moving good. I'm still light on my feet and everything. I think I'm fine."

He credits the additional weight to time spent at home amid the covid-19 outbreak. In that time, Cunningham said, he was simply eating more and had fewer workouts. He started cooking for himself, too. "I definitely got stronger since then - a lot stronger - and it (really) helps," he added. "I know (Sam) Pittman's referenced it before about sitting on the bull rush and pass pro. It definitely helps. "It makes a big difference in run blocking. It's way easier." - Northwest Arkansas Times

  2021 SENIOR BOWL WATCH LIST: Myron Cunningham, Arkansas,...Appearing in 11 games and making 10 starts predominately at left tackle and right guard, Cunningham proved to be a durable offensive lineman in his first season on the Hill last year, playing every snap of the game on eight occasions. The Warren, Ohio native excelled in pass protection and only surrendered one sack on 383 pass blocking plays. Prior to arriving in Fayetteville, Cunningham played two seasons at Iowa Western Community College, where he was a 2018 NJCAA First-Team All-American. - Arkansas Football

  In losing the offensive line coach he committed to play for at Arkansas, Myron Cunningham gained two coaches who will oversee his position. Brad Davis is the Razorbacks' offensive line coach to replace the departed Dustin Fry, but first-year head coach Sam Pittman will also add his considerable expertise gained over more than two decades coaching college lines. "I feel like their knowledge of the game is just very, very strong," Cunningham said. "It helps when you have a head coach who is such a highly recognized offensive line guy. Then you have an offensive line coach who is almost like the second best (behind Pittman). It just really helps, especially when you're trying to go to that next level. They can teach you so many things. They've taught the whole offense things we haven't known."

Cunningham said the coaches are trying to make sure the Razorbacks don't "have a repeat of last year" when they were often pushed around, especially in pass coverage. Arkansas allowed 19 sacks a year ago, including 15 in conference games. Ole Miss, Kentucky, Auburn and LSU all recorded three sacks against the Razorbacks to go along with several other quarterback hurries. "I think the motivation is to prove not only to everyone else, but prove to ourselves because we know we're better than that," Cunningham said of last season. "I think this year we'll go around with a chip on our shoulder to prove to ourselves…who we are and what we're capable of. I think that's our goal." - Northwest Arkansas Times

  Arkansas football coach Sam Pittman came to one conclusion upon his offensive linemen returning to campus for voluntary workouts. All of their mothers must be able to cook and cook well, he joked Tuesday on a Zoom conference call with reporters. Asked who among the returning offensive linemen had added positive weight, Pittman mentioned redshirt senior Myron Cunningham first. A transfer from Iowa Central Community College, Cunningham, who stands at 6-7, started in 10 of 11 games played in 2019, his first season at Arkansas. He is now approximately 319 pounds, according to Pittman, up from 293 pounds following winter conditioning. "He needed it," Pittman said. "It's hard to set the bull when you don't have enough butt to set it with. So, he needed it. I had a nice conversation with him, and I'm thinking he's going to have a nice season. "He worked hard at gaining that weight and staying in shape." - Northwest Arkansas Times

  Arkansas football players will be allowed to return to the field for modified practices beginning July 24. The NCAA Division I Council on Wednesday voted to accept proposed guidelines for a six-week preseason period. The changes are intended to make up for practice time that was lost in the spring due to the covid-19 outbreak. Under the amended preseason model, players will be eligible to participate in up to six hours of walk-throughs that include the use of a football between July 24 and Aug. 6.

Beginning July 24, players can participate in up to 20 hours of football activities, including up to eight hours of weight training and conditioning, up to six hours of walk-throughs, and up to six hours of team meetings and film review. Players would be required to have two days off each week during that time. Earlier this month, Arkansas coach Sam Pittman compared the extra time to organized team activities - more commonly referred to as OTAs - in the NFL. - Northwest Arkansas Times
