The field of 32 is set.
Patrick Willis and 31 other stars of the NFL will vie for the 2013 EA Madden video game cover.
Willis made the final eight last year, and this time around he’s a No. 11 seed in the opening round facing No. 6 seed Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte.
Voting information and more 49ers headlines can be found after the jump.
49ers Faithful can vote for Willis from now through March 28 by visiting ESPN.com’s SportsNation page.
The 49ers bolstered their receiving corps on Thursday by signing talented wide receiver Mario Manningham to a two-year contract. Manningham, who spent the first four years of his career with the New York Giants and won a Super Bowl last season, also spoke to 95.7 The Game earlier this morning.
Another one of the team’s prominent figures was in the news quite a bit recently as well (you might have heard). Quarterback Alex Smith signed a three-year deal to remain with the 49ers through 2014 and spoke exclusively with 49ers.com and TV49 afterwards.
Our Wednesday coverage also extended to San Jose State’s pro day, where former 49ers Pro Bowl quarterback Jeff Garcia was one of the noticeable faces in attendance.
For those losing track of the latest in 49ers free agency, Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com has an updated scorecard for the club.
