Florida State will get to keep a huge part of its defense in 2017


Florida State's defense was one of the best in the country this season. The Seminoles led the country in sacks with 51 and had 94 tackles for loss as a team. DeMarcus Walker will get a lot of that credit with 20.5 tackles for loss and 16 sacks by himself. However, he had great players along the line with him and one of those guys was junior Derrick Nnadi.

Nnadi had 10.5 tackles for loss, 49 total tackles and six sacks by himself. And fortunately for FSU, he's decided he's staying in school another year.

He'll likely be joined by Brian Burns, Demarcus Christmas and Josh Sweat in the trenches next year so this defense is shaping up to be dominant once again.
