Biography: Part-time starter at the past four seasons at both wide receiver and tight end. Senior totals included 11/174/3 after career numbers of 20/352/4 as a junior.
Positives: King-sized pass catcher who never elevated his game or live up to expectations. Catches the pass away from his frame, makes the difficult reception in a crowd and effectively uses his frame to shield away opponents and protect the pass. Works his way across the field or back into the clearing to make itself an available target. Plays with good knee bend and breaks down well. Quick off the snap and blocks with excellent leverage.
Negatives: Must significantly turn up the intensity as a blocker. Does not play to his time speed.
Analysis: Cumberland is a prospect who looks the part yet only plays to it occasionally, possessing tight end size and receiver speed. He possesses the athleticism to play at the next level yet really needs to pull the pieces together rather quickly.
