The San Francisco 49ers are enjoying the festivities of Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas, and one of the people who’s taking it all in is Brock Purdy.
The young quarterback is leading his team to the Super Bowl in only his first full season under center, and fans can count on him to keep his high level of production going under the brightest lights.
Ahead of the big game, it’s been revealed that Kyle Shanahan knew all along that Purdy was the best gunslinger in the team’s 2022 QB room. It was a shock of a revelation, and Purdy was caught blindsided by the sudden compliment.
Brock Purdy had no idea about his QB status in the San Francisco 49ers
During the media interviews the Iowa State product attended throughout the week, the topic of being named the best QB among the Niners was nothing short of a surprising moment for Purdy.
The Spun’s Andrew Gould detailed his thoughts:
“I didn’t really know that about Kyle and how he felt about me or anything,” Purdy said, per NBC Sports Bay Area. It was more about, alright, how can I continue to get better and grow and everything. But I mean, obviously, hearing it now, it’s pretty cool that they sensed that early on, and they did believe in me early on.”
It’s a surprising sentiment to hear from anyone in and around the NFL. Purdy was selected with the last pick of the 2022 Draft. Meanwhile, the San Francisco 49ers had to give up three picks to select Trey Lance with the third pick in 2021. They also had a seasoned QB in Jimmy Garoppolo who led the team to a Super Bowl LIV appearance.
The fact that Purdy was the best man out of the three defies general draft and team-building conventions that it begets disbelief.
However, his production this season settles the case for Shanahan and company. He finished the 2023 season with 4280 passing yards and 31 touchdowns on a league-high 113.0 QB score. Meanwhile, Lance is a backup QB at the Dallas Cowboys while Jimmy Garoppolo’s future with the Las Vegas Raiders is in limbo.
