    Both pro bowl selections.



    Is it safe to say that with all the great DT's that have played for LSU, that Kyle Williams is the best of the whole bunch? Just a workman attitude.

    A lot of guys who are average/above average in college are even better pros because of the talent around them and what their role on the team is. Kyle was an above average college player, but definitely not the best. He just worked his ass off and made the most of his opportunities.

    He epitomizes the word "professional" very happy for Kyle, especially since he is a native as well.

    Williams was All-SEC and All-American at LSU. That's WAY above average.

    Yeh-u-rite. KW was definitely an elite player. What I should have said is that he didn't have a 'name' like Dorsey or some of the other high profile DLs that have come through the program.

    Having to play alongside Lavalais and Wroten, he had to share the ink.

    Which is tough since he ended up being the best of the bunch.
