    Glenn Dorsey, Sr. LSU
    The LSU line was going to be good no matter what, and then it became special when its 6-2, 299-pound star chose to come back for his senior season when he likely would've been a top 20 draft pick. Yet another in a long line of great LSU tackles, Dorsey went from a solid reserve to a jaw-dropping star after he got in better shape. He used his quickness to make 64 tackles with 8.5 tackles for loss and three sacks.

    Sedrick Ellis, Sr. USC
    Ellis is the premier interior lineman in the Pac-10, an explosive and disruptive force that plays with great leverage and has made Trojan fans forget Mike Patterson. He had 34 tackles, eight tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks last year, which don’t do justice to his importance to the defense. While not necessarily a space-eater, he's the focal point for the rest of the D to revolve around.

    2007 CFN Preseason Second Team All-Americans

    Andre Fluellen, Sr., Florida State
    The Noles have question marks on the line, but they have a great one to revolve around in the 6-4, 286-pound Fluellen on the inside. While he's not a space-eater, he's as quick as an end and can more than hold his own against the run. He came up with 28 tackles and eight tackles for loss, but with his athleticism, he should be doing far more to get into the backfield on a regular basis.

    Frank Okam, Sr. Texas
    With 26 career starts, 37 appearances, and 108 tackles, Okam is the seasoned vet and the leader on the line. He had a chance to leave early for the NFL draft, and would've been a top 50 pick, but the 6-5, 320-pounder is back and should be in the hunt for All-America honors. Not just a rock against the run, he's great at getting into the backfield.
