2023 Player Outlook
Purdy began the 2022 NFL season by being drafted with the last pick in the draft, dubbed “Mr. Irrelevant” only to find himself appearing in nine games as a rookie, starting five of them during the regular season while going 5-0. Purdy threw for 1,374 yards with 13 touchdowns and four interceptions while leading the 49ers to the NFC Championship game. Unfortunately during the NFC Championship game Purdy tore his UCL which required offseason elbow surgery to repair. All reports are great for Purdy however and team continues to be high on the prospects of him being their starting QB come Week 1. He is going to have some competition from Trey Lance but if healthy he has the head start.
