Glenn Jamon Dorsey (born August 1, 1985) is an American football nose tackle who is currently a free agent. He played college football for Louisiana State University (LSU), received All-America honors twice, and was recognized as the top college defensive player of the 2007 season. He was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs with the fifth overall pick in the 2008 NFL draft.
Dorsey was born in Gonzales, Louisiana. He attended East Ascension High School in Gonzales, where he was rated among the nation's top defensive linemen and one of the top three prospects in the state. He was named Louisiana’s 4A Defensive Player of the Year and a first-team 4A all-state selection. During his junior year, Dorsey had more than 100 tackles, and 12 sacks. As a senior, he missed three games due to an ankle injury, and finished the season with 43 tackles, two sacks and one forced fumble.
Dorsey attended Louisiana State University, and played for coach Nick Saban and coach Les Miles's LSU Tigers football teams from 2004 to 2007. As a true freshman in the 2004 season, he started in 3 out of 12 games. On his first collegiate snap he recovered a fumble against Oregon State. He finished the year with 18 tackles.
In 2006, Dorsey was named to the 2006 All-American team and was All-SEC. He finished the season as the Tigers' third-leading tackler with 64 stops, including 8.5 for losses and three sacks. Dorsey was named the SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week twice during the season.
In 2007, Dorsey started 13 of 14 games recording 69 tackles, 7 sacks, 12.5 tackles for loss, three passes defensed, and a forced fumble. He was also named the SEC Defensive Player of the Week twice during the season. Following the 2007 season, he was recognized as a unanimous first-team All-American. He also finished ninth in the 2007 voting for the Heisman Trophy, receiving more votes than any other defensive player in the nation. In addition, Dorsey was awarded the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, the Outland Trophy, the Lott Trophy and the Lombardi Award, becoming the only player to win all four awards. Dorsey was a member of LSU's 2007 BCS Championship team. He was a key component in LSU’s drive to the BCS national title despite playing the second half of the season with knee and tailbone injuries.
Prior to the draft some NFL teams expressed concern over a lingering stress fracture Dorsey sustained in 2006. At the NFL Combine, Dorsey spent nearly ten hours getting examined at an Indianapolis hospital.

On March 13, 2013, Dorsey signed a two-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers.

Dorsey signed a two-year extension with San Francisco on August 19, 2014. On November 25, 2015, Dorsey was placed on injured reserve with a torn ACL, ending his season.
