Most people around the Virginia Tech football program know that Dadi Nicolas is a very good speed rusher and is ready to become a full-time defensive end. Nicolas is going to be the main defensive end for the Hokies next season and he has potential to be a big time playmaker for a Virginia Tech defense that will need playmakers in the front 7 other than Luther Maddy. However, Nicolas apparently has the type of speed that will frighten opponents after a tweet that he put up earlier today about his 40 yard dash times.
I ran a 4.47 and a 4.5 #Iwanta4.4

Okay, so that is quite impressive and every coach in the ACC is probably a little scared after hearing this news. Of course, there is a difference from running a 40 yard dash and his actual game speed but that is still quite impressive. Dadi Nicolas is going to be the main defensive end for the Hokies and this is a very good sign that he has the potential to be a breakout player that sees his NFL draft stock climb some. Nicolas has a lot of potential and the raw talent to become a big time defensive end and not just a situation pass rusher like he was last season.
