NFLN survey/feared player: 49ers

By Bill Williamson

This makes sense.

Patrick Willis is one of the most feared players in the NFL.

Even a casual NFL observer can tell you the San Francisco 49ers inside linebacker is a vicious playmaker on the field. His peers feel the same way. Willis finished fourth in the survey of 320 players who were asked about the most feared player in the NFL.

He received 23 votes. Detroit defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh received the most votes (61). Detroit receiver Calvin Johnson was second, Houston’s defensive end J.J. Watt was third. Forty-eight players in total received votes.

What are your thoughts? Should Willis be ranked higher? Lower? Fill up the comments section below.
