re: Top 5 Best Interior Defensive Lineman at LSU (1990-PRESENT)
quote:

Dorsey doesn't get hurt his whole career and doesn't get stuck playing end on 3-4 defenses I think hedve had some warren sapp type sack totals. Maybe not for as long but at least for a 4/5 year window. He was a little bigger but the way they moved the long arms and the lower body power was very similar.



I dont think Dorsey was strong enough to have Sapp type impact but its a shame we didnt get to see him without injury and playing 3-4 end.
Pre Chop block he may have been the most unblockable dt ive seen at lsu. Booger was great two. Imo its Booger and Dorsey on 1 level and then a bunch of other great lsu dts.

Maybe not but pre injury he was beating triple teams. What I mean is the way they were built both kinda short with powerful lower bodies and long arms. In college they looked like clones of each other to me.

dorsey should be at #2. williams at #3, but an arguement can be made for lots of guys at #3 on down. mcfarland is number 1 and it's not really debatable. dorsey is an easy #2.

Leonard Allen Marshall Jr. (born October 22, 1961) is a former American football defensive lineman who played twelve seasons in the National Football League (NFL). Selected 37th overall in the 1983 NFL Draft, he spent the first ten seasons of his career with the New York Giants where he accumulated 79.5 sacks, ranking him third in team history. He was twice selected to the Pro Bowl and twice named NFL Defensive Lineman of the Year following the 1985 and 1986 seasons. He won two championships with the Giants, recording three sacks in the two Super Bowl games which he played in. Marshall is most famously known for his 1991 hit on Joe Montana that knocked him out of the NFC championship game and sidelined him for almost two years, ending his career with the 49ers. After his time with the Giants, Marshall went on to play a season each for the New York Jets and Washington Redskins, then retired from football at the age of 33. He played college football at Louisiana State University.

1. Dorsey
2. Lavalais
3. Booger
4. Williams
5. Key

Mr. Congeniality:
Logan, Spears, Hill, Jarvis Green, Gabe Northern

No knock on the current or recent DLman but outside of key the guys in the last 4 years have been very...meh compared to guys from the late 90's to mid 2000's. Those years were straight up nasty for LSU DLineman. I hope we can get back to that.

If it weren't for the Auburn thugs hurting Dorsey, his stats would have been legendary that year.

Leonard Marshall finished up in '82. Doesn't meet the OP's criteria but if we go back that far then Ramsey Dardar, Karl Wilson, and Henry Thomas ought to be mentioned.

The funny thing is that Kyle Williams is the best DL ever in the pros from LSU and it isn't even close.

Booger's stat-line is straight filthy.


And it only tells part of the story. A classic Booger highlight goes like this:

Booger takes a C/G double team 3 or 4 yards into the backfield - it's a delay hand off, so he flicks the guard away with his wrist, grabs the running back and takes the back and center into the QB and they all collapse into a heap. TFL, bitches.
