Patrick Lee Tilley (born February 15, 1953) is a former NFL wide receiver who played for the St. Louis Cardinals (1976–1986). He was selected to the Pro Bowl after the 1980 season.

Tilley played football and graduated in 1971 from Fair Park High School in Shreveport. Thereafter, he enrolled at Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, where he played for the Bulldogs.

After his football career ended with the 1986 season with the St. Louis Cardinals, Tilley became the area director for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and gave motivational messages throughout northwest Louisiana.[1] In his Christian testimony, Tilley said, "When I put God first in my life, my football career boomed."[2]
