Rookie linebacker Patrick Willis has been honored by the NFL as the Defensive Rookie of the Month for October.
Willis has been an impact player since his first game of the year against Arizona, and especially throughout the month of October. In three games in October, Willis amassed 43 tackles (27 solo). His best performance was against Baltimore (10-7-07) where he made 16 tackles (10 solo). In the first seven regular games, Willis has registered double digits in tackles (solo & assist combined). Dating back to 1976, no rookie 49ers linebacker has opened their career with four consecutive games of double-digit tackles.
The rookie linebacker list includes former first round picks - Cas Banaszek (1967), Dan Bunz (1978), Todd Shell (1984), Keith DeLong (1989) and Julian Peterson (2000 Willis has 94 tackles (58 solo). He is on pace for 214 total tackles, which would tie the unofficial NFL record for tackles in a season. Hardy Nickerson totaled 214 tackles in 1993, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
