Brock Purdy Career

Purdy spent four years as an Iowa State Cyclone and was the starting quarterback for three of those. He was initially only the third-string choice but stepped up in his rookie year after a spate of injuries on the roster.

By the time Purdy finished his time at Iowa State he had been named as an All-Big 12 QB three times and held over 30 school records. He smashed previous records set for passing and his four years as a Cyclone were the first time that Iowa State had recorded four consecutive winning seasons since the late 1920s.

Although he was obviously highly regarded at Iowa State, Purdy was selected by the San Francisco 49ers with the 262nd overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. That’s the last pick of the event, earning the recipient the nickname, “Mr. Irrelevant”. Purdy, once again, took the position on the roster as third-string quarterback.

Just weeks into his rookie season, Purdy was making his NFL debut. Because of injuries to the first two choices for the 49ers, he went on to play nine games, starting five of them. He won all five of those starts and led the 49ers to the second seed in the playoffs. San Francisco won the Wild Card and Divisional playoff games but lost to Philadelphia in the NFC Championship game after Purdy suffered an injury early on.

Purdy was named as the starting quarterback for the 2023 season and played and started every single regular season game apart from the final one. The 49ers had already qualified as the number one seed and it was thought that the rest could do him good before what could be a grueling postseason.

It is remarkable how far Brock Purdy has come in just two seasons of pro football. He is now considered one of the best players in the NFL and could end this season by becoming a Super Bowl champion.

Awards and Achievements

Purdy has been honored with awards and achievements ever since he was at high school. At Iowa State, he was a three-time All-Big 12 player and is one of the most successful players ever to suit up as a Cyclone.

Although his NFL career has been brief so far, he was named as NFC Rookie of the Month twice last season – and made the PFWA All-Rookie Team. He has broken a number of NFL records, including being the first “Mr. Irrelevant” to ever throw a touchdown pass in a regular season game. He was the NFL passer rating leader in 2023 and was also selected to start in the 2024 Pro Bowl.
