BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter who came to college as a defensive tackle. Suspended in .05 after breaking the jaw of his teammate during a fight.
POSITIVES: Solid small-area blocker with good strength at the point. Explosive, jolts defenders and gets movement from run blocks. Plays with a wide base and easily anchors at the point. Solid position blocker who seals defenders from the action.
NEGATIVES: Lacks adjustment and beaten by athletic opponents. Over-extends into blocks and is not effective on the move.
ANALYSIS: After missing a year due to a suspension, Nwaneri made a successful return to the field last year. Consistent in all areas of the game and could start at the next level for a team that keeps his area responsibilities to a minimum.
