Leo Nomellini was a two-way lineman who played 14 pro seasons with the San Francisco 49ers and is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame; played in 10 Pro Bowl games; two-time All-American at the University of Minnesota; first-ever draft pick of the 49ers in 1950; performed as a pro wrestler during the offseason.

Died: Stanford, Calif. , Oct. 17 2007

Nomellini was a first-team All-Pro four times on defense and twice on offense and was named to the Pro Bowl 10 times. He never missed a game while playing for the 49ers from 1950 to 1963. A Hall of Fame selection committee chose him at defensive tackle for the N.F.L.'s 50th anniversary team in 1969.

''He was as strong as three bulls,'' said Joe Perry, the 49ers fullback who entered pro football's Hall of Fame with Nomellini in 1969. ''He'd slap you on the back and knock you 20 feet.''
