I'd say it's probably his biggest strength, but he's definitely elite when he's shadowing and the ball's in the air as well.
Glad he's going to get his opportunity in the spotlight this year.
did you know that Oakland has been in the bottom-5 in run defense for the past 5 years and also the least thrown on team in general for the past 5 years?
much of the reason no one tested Nnamdi in that time is for the simple fact that no one needed to throw the ball on against that team PERIOD
