David Wilcox (September 29, 1942-) (LB) was a ferocious tackled who thrived on pressure and encouraged the play to approach him to allow his speed, strength and tackling instincts take over punishing opposing ball carriers. Dave earned All-American honors at Boise Junior College (now Boise State University) before transferring to the University of Oregon for his final two college seasons. The San Francisco 49ers selected Wilcox in the third round of the 1964 NFL Draft, but the Houston Oilers also took him in that year’s AFL Draft. Choosing to play for the 49ers, Dave quickly established himself as one of the most menacing outside linebackers in the in the NFC, let alone the National Football League. During his 11-year career in San Francisco (1964-1974), Wilcox missed only one game due to injury, was elected to the 1971 and 1972 NFL All-Pro First Teams, earned five NFL Newspaper Enterprise Association All-Pro First Team selections and played in seven NFL Pro Bowls. In 11 seasons, he helped lead the Niners to three playoff appearances and the 1970 and 1971 NFC Championship Games. Dave Wilcox intercepted 14 passes for 149 yards and one touchdown. He also recovered 12 fumbles for 48 yards and one touchdown. Dave Wilcox was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2000.
