Willis had his best day of practice in a 49ers uniform. He drilled WR Brandon Williams, who came across the middle to catch a pass. Then, Willis made a big stop on RB Thomas Clayton. He showed perfect form on his tackles. His goal on every hit, he says is to “wrap and grab cloth.”
When the 49ers did some “live” 11-on-11 work that featured the reserves, Willis was all over the place. He made a tackle of Clayton at the line of scrimmage, and leveled FB Steve Dildine after a 2-yard completion from QB Luke Getsy.
The morning practice concluded when Willis recorded an interception off a pass that CB Sammy Joseph deflected that was intended for C.J. Brewer.
