In honour of each Chief’s victory this season, Nnadi has donated the adoption cost for a puppy at a nearby Kansas City animal shelter. He paid the adoption costs for each dog available for adoption at the shelter in honour of winning Super Bowl LIV.
Nnadi was taken by the Kansas City Chiefs with the 75th overall pick in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft. In order to choose Nnadi, the Chiefs dealt their third-round selection (86th overall) and a fourth-round pick (122nd overall) to the Baltimore Ravens for the Ravens’ third-round pick (75th overall).
Nnadi would not be taking part in the 2018 Reese’s Senior Bowl owing to an injury, it was reported on January 19, 2018. He participated in the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis and finished all of the workouts for his position. His whole performance was deemed subpar, which hurt his draft prospects.
At Florida State’s pro day on March 20, 2018, Nnadi selected to compete in the short shuttle (4.97 seconds) and vertical jump (25.5″).
Nnadi recorded his first career interception off Philip Rivers in Week 11 of the 2019 campaign during Monday Night Football against the Los Angeles Chargers in the 24-17 victory.
