Patrick Willis Biography
Linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers, Patrick Willis was born January 25, 1985 in Bruceton, Tennessee. He was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers 11th overall in the 2007 NFL Draft. He played college football at Mississippi.
During Willis' senior season at Ole Miss, he won the 2006 Butkus Award. A year later during his rookie season with the 49ers, Willis led the NFL in tackles, was voted to the Pro Bowl and was named the 2007 AP NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.
Willis finished the 2007 campaign with an NFL-leading 174 total tackles, along with 4 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, and 5 passes deflected. As a result, Willis was one of two 49ers selected to the Pro Bowl along with punter Andy Lee. Other honors earned at the conclusion of his first professional season included being named the NFC Defensive Rookie of the Year, NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, and First Team All-Pro by the Associated Press. He was the only rookie in the NFL to make the AP All-Pro squad and the first Defensive Rookie from the 49ers to make the Pro Bowl since Ronnie Lott in 1981. His season was capped by being named one of ESPN The Magazine's "NEXT" athletes of 2008, alongside Yankee Joba Chamberlain and Trail Blazer Brandon Roy.
He ended his rookie season with 174 Tackles, 4.0 Sacks, 2 Forced Fumbles, 7.0 Tackles at a loss, and 5 Passes Defended. According to the 49ers, however, he is unofficially credited with over 200 tackles during that season.
In his second NFL season he scored his first career NFL touchdown, on an 86 yard return of an interception, off a deflection.
Willis is sponsored by Under Armour and is featured in many of the company's advertisements.
