Nnadi does a nice job at the point of attack controlling the line of scrimmage. He plays with good leverage, is extremely strong and does a good job using his hands to shed blockers. Nnadi‘s motor never stops and he plays with passion. He will get on the field early at the next level and has the potential to develop into a special player in college. -- Michael Clark
As stated, Nnadi is strong at the point of attack and has great drive! His hand and foot work are also strong assets he utilizes from the snap and as Michael Clark stated he is (and should be at the next level) effective at shedding blockers and getting into the opposition's backfield.
