Brock Purdy is the latest member of the “Mr. Irrelevant” membership.
The 49ers chosen the former Iowa State quarterback with the 262nd – and final – decide in the 2022 NFL Draft. He completes a San Francisco draft class that features linebacker Drake Jackson, working again Tyrion Davis-Price, receiver Danny Gray, sort out Spencer Burford, cornerback Samuel Womack, sort out Nick Zakelj, defensive lineman Kalia Davis, and cornerback Tariq Castro-Fields.
The crew’s quarterback standing hangs in the steadiness, with Jimmy Garoppolo, Trey Lance and Nate Sudfeld at present on the roster. The 49ers are reportedly desirous to commerce Garoppolo, who was the major starter final season, to make room for Lance, who they chose with the third decide in final year’s NFL draft.
Purdy will try to win a job in that quarterback room and stick as a backup. That would possibly depend upon Garoppolo’s standing, nevertheless.
