San Francisco 49ers star linebacker Patrick Willis has advanced to the Madden Final Four. The five-time Pro Bowler is in the hunt to be on the cover of the Madden 13 video game, which will be released prior to the start of the 2012 NFL season.

The other three players in the Final Four bracket are Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton bested Larry Fitzgerald, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, and Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson.
