Regarded by many as one of the NFL’s best defensive players, 49ers four-time Pro Bowl linebacker Patrick Willis was officially ranked as the game’s No. 23 overall player according to NFL Network’s Top 100 Players of 2011.
Willis’ segment which aired this past Sunday, featured several remarkable highlights from the linebacker’s impressive career as well as a presentation from linebacker Takeo Spikes.
“Patrick does all the ordinary things, extraordinarily well,” Spikes said.
“He never slows down to think about what he’s accomplished in the past. It’s always, ‘What can I do to get better.’”
In four seasons, Willis has totaled 737 tackles, 15.0 sacks, eight forced fumbles, four interceptions and two fumble recoveries.
After Willis’ inclusion on the list was revealed, the humble star went to Twitter to let everyone know his thoughts on the ranking.
