Former Chiefs DT Glenn Dorsey to be enshrined in College Football Hall of Fame

·2 min read

A former Kansas City Chiefs draft pick is set to be enshrined into the College Football Hall of Fame today.

Glenn Dorsey was selected for the College Football Hall of Fame class of 2020, but the National Football Foundation Awards Dinner was delayed last year due to COVID-19. Both the 2020 and 2021 College Football Hall of Fame classes will be enshrined at this year’s awards dinner.

One of the most highly decorated players in LSU Tigers history, Dorsey was a two-time First Team All-American, including a unanimous selection in 2007. That season LSU defeated Ohio State to win the BCS National Championship. Dorsey also won the SEC Defensive Player of the Year award, the Lombardi Award, the Outland Trophy, the Bronko Nagurski Trophy and the Lott Trophy for his defensive dominance.

Dorsey finished his career at LSU with 179 total tackles, 27 tackles for loss and 15 sacks, paving the way to become the fifth overall pick by Kansas City in the 2008 NFL draft. He’d spend five seasons with the Chiefs, but failed to capture the same type of success that made him a College Football Hall of Famer. He’d finish his career in Kansas City starting 65 games, recording 238 tackles, 23 tackles for loss and just four sacks.

Many consider Dorsey to be one of the biggest draft busts in franchise history, but others recognize that he was drafted into a situation with the Chiefs that didn’t set him up for NFL success. Dorsey would finish out his NFL career spending three seasons with the San Francisco 49ers before calling it quits after the 2015 NFL season.

Dorsey will take part in a press conference that can be streamed today at 11 a.m. CT on ESPN3. The NFF Awards Dinner starts at 9 p.m. CT tonight and can also be seen on ESPN3.
