In his time in Tallahassee, Nnadi had 165 tackles, eight sacks, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.


Nnadi started 13 games for the Noles in 2017, and finished with 75 solo tackles and 53 total tackles, a four-year career best.

The trade gives the Chiefs the 46th pick and the 100th pick, and in exchange, the Bengals get the 54th pick and the 78th pick. Nnadi is one of the top defensive tackles in this class that'll add depth behind Justin Hamilton in the middle of the Chiefs' defensive line.

The Chiefs defensive line just got more versatile with the selection of Speaks.
