BATON ROUGE, La. -- Whether they're highly touted or unheralded, LSU finds a way to churn out elite defensive linemen.

Former LSU great Glenn Dorsey was a five-star recruit out of high school, and fit the billing by becoming an All-American and a top-10 draft pick.

Recently departed sophomore Michael Brockers took a less-heralded path and made the switch from defensive end to defensive tackle. He wasn't a well-known name among Tigers fans entering 2011, but Brockers blew up for LSU last season and will likely parlay that success into a first round draft selection.
