Brock Purdy is the quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League (NFL). After the 49ers took him with the last pick in the NFL Draft while he was playing college football for Iowa State, he was known as “Mr. Irrelevant” in 2022.
The guy from Arizona got the bad nickname “Mr. Irrelevant” because he was the last player picked in the NFL draft in 2022. But because the team’s starting quarterback, Jimmy Garappolo, got hurt, the 22-year-old has been thrust into the spotlight.
The 49ers picked him with the last pick of the 2022 draft, even though Garappolo and Trey Lance were ahead of him on the depth chart. Not much was expected of Purdy.
But in Week 13, when the team played the Miami Dolphins, Purdy had to play because Lance was out for the season and Garappolo broke his foot and was put on injured reserve.
He was the first “Mr. Irrelevant” to throw a touchdown pass in a regular-season game. He helped the 49ers win 33-17 by completing two touchdown passes.

In the fourth quarter of the game against the Kansas City Chiefs, he played for Jimmy Garoppolo of the 49ers and threw for 66 yards.
