Former Florida State defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi was drafted in the third round Friday night by the Chiefs (No. 75 overall).

He's the second former Seminole defender chosen, after first-round safety Derwin James went to the Chargers on Thursday.

Nnadi is considered slightly undersized for an NFL interior lineman (6-foot-1, 317 pounds) but amassed 53 tackles (10 for a loss) in his final season at FSU.
