Glenn Dorsey or Sedrick Ellis: Take Your Pick

Bleacher ReportAnalyst IAugust 23, 2008

At the beginning of the 2007-08 college football season, college football experts were picking their teams to meet up at the Louisiana Superdome for the BCS National Championship Game.

Glenn Dorsey (above) and the LSU Tigers made it. Sedrick Ellis and the USC Trojans didn't.

Before the draft, they were said to be called equal. Both play the same in certain situations, both of their teams are coming off of disappointing seasons, and they both will most likely be starting defensive tackles whenever the NFL regular season opens.

Maybe it was the National Championship game appearance that convinced the Kansas City Chiefs to pick Dorsey fifth overall and caused Ellis to drop to the seventh overall pick, even though the New Orleans Saints traded up to pick him.

Who will be the better NFL defensive tackle?

According to their stats, both appear to be equal. Ellis gets to the quarterback more while Dorsey has more tackles (see stats below). I don't know about you, but I'm looking forward to seeing who has more impact for their team.

Name                                        Tackles                                   Sacks                       Years

Glenn Dorsey                          172                                  13                        4

Sedrick Ellis                            144                                 17.5                      4
