He's the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year.. He's also Not satisfied with his first year as a professional football player. Former Ole Miss Star Patrick Willis more than lived up to his position as the 11th overall pick in the NFL Draft. As the starting Middle Linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers, Willis led the League with 174 tackles. But, the 9ers struggled to a 5-11 record. Willis told ESPN's Jim Rome today, that doesn't make him happy.
"I may have played a good game but we lost. So I'm driving home wondering what I could have done different to help this team win.'
Willis heads to Hawaii as the starting Linebacker for the NFC in the Pro Bowl.
