He ranks 1st among NFC TE’s in yards. and tied for 3rd in receptions.

LB PATRICK WILLIS - Willis leads the 49ers in tackles to go along with 4.0 sacks, 2 INTs (1 returned for TD), 3 FFs and 11 PDs. According to NFL stats, Willis ranks 2nd in the NFL in tackles (132).

    Willis is ranked #1 in tackles, by a fairly big margin.

    YOU KNOW WHO SHOULD BE CONSIDERED???? JUSTIN SMITH!!! WHY IS IT THAT ONE OF THE MOST CONSISTENT PLAYERS ON OUR D IS NEVER MENTIONED?? JUSTIN SMITH IS ONE TOUGH FOOTBALL PLAYER THAT I THINK IS UNDERRATED IN THIS LEAGUE, THE GUY GOES HARD EVERY GAME, JUSTIN SMITH DESERVES SOME VOTES LET ALONE RECOGNITION.

    Jo, I just voted for J-smith. Can you imagine having him and jared allen on the corners. Stick the Williams Brothers and Abreyo in their They would be unstoppable. Patrick is a sho-in, Gore should honestly be considered… who else besides AP in NFC at running back is there really?

    ANDY LEE IS AMAZING AND I WANT HIM TO COMPLETE ANOTHER PASS FOR A FIRST DOWN IN THE PROBOWL,

    Manny is definitely worth consideration.

    And VD is so amazing if he doesnt make the pro bowl the world will in fact come to an end in 2012!

    Im out

    I feel like Dashon Goldson is also having a breakout year for his first year starting, he should at least get some votes especially after his big game agains Arizona, this guy will be huge I saw it back when we drafted him

    Vernon Davis should definitely be in there as a leader in reception TDs. Frank Gore has had his moments of greatness this year, but unfortunately has been mostly kept quiet due to the evolution of the offense. Franklin’s ability to swallow up multiple O-linemen and allow Willis to play off him so well should get him in there with Willis. Lee is amazing. I do not see any other punter in the league play with the consistency and firepower this guy does at the position. I like Smith, but as noted he doesn’t get enough recognition.

    Vernon Davis has my vote this season because he has played outstanding football as a receiver and blocker. I enjoy watching him in action.
