Brock Purdy breaks decades-long NFL curse as 2022 Mr Irrelevent shines following Jimmy Garoppolo injury

SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS quarterback Brock Purdy made history after replacing the injured Jimmy Garoppolo against Miami Dolphins.

Former Iowa State star Purdy, 22, was selected as the final pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

That makes him 'Mr Irrelevant', the name given to every player who has ever been taken as the 262nd pick.

Purdy entered the game against the Dolphins having only made one other appearance so far this season.

In relief of Jimmy G in October, he threw for 66 yards and one interception in a 23-44 loss to Kansas City Chiefs.

His college stats are impressive, passing for 12,170 yards and 81 touchdowns during his four years as a starter at Iowa State.

And Purdy was immediately effective against the Dolphins, inspiring his team to a 33-17 win to go 8-4 on the season.

He attempted 37 passes, completing 25 for 210 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

In the process, Purdy ended one of the longest curses in NFL history.

His touchdown pass Kyle Juszczyk was the first regular season score EVER thrown by a 'Mr Irrelevant'.

And head coach Kyle Shanahan appears to have no issues with giving him the starters role going forward.

Shanahan told reporters: "Brock came in and made some big plays.

"He’s got some balls out there, forgive me for saying it that way. Just throwing him in there in the heat of battle like that, they had some good adjustments, taking away our hot throws.

"We were having to change a lot of stuff on the fly which put a lot of pressure on him that way.

"I thought he did a hell of a job doing it."

Garroppolo had taken the starting role for the Niners from Trey Lance, who went on injured reserve in September.

Jimmy G is now also out for the season, with journeyman Josh Johnson brought in to shadow Purdy.

The youngster looks set to be handed a Week 14 starting role against the Buccaneers - where he'll face 45-year-old legend Tom Brady.

Undaunted, Purdy said: "Dude has been playing football longer than I've been alive!

"So yeah, to have a first start against the GOAT, it's going to be pretty cool.

"But just any other game, man, it's got to be efficient, do my thing and play football."

Should Purdy remain healthy and start, he will become the first 'Mr Irrelevant' to start a regular season game at quarterback.

Through the decades of the NFL draft, only six quarterbacks- including Purdy - have been chosen with the final pick.
