Card: #353 Brock Purdy

What makes it special? Brock Purdy started his rookie season with the San Francisco 49ers as the team's third-string quarterback. After injuries to Trey Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo, the young QB was thrust into the spotlight during the 2022 regular season and rose to the occasion. Purdy won all five games he started, playing a part in the team's 10-game winning streak and helping them secure another division title.

Following the exit of both Lance and Garoppolo, Purdy was named the starter ahead of the 2023 season. In only his second season, the former Iowa State Cyclone led the 49ers to a 12-5 regular season record, as they defended their NFC West division title once again. Purdy's superb play throughout the season has also entered his name into the MVP race, with strong performances in the playoffs so far adding to his case for the coveted award. The QB's late heroics against the Detroit Lions in the NFC Championship game propelled San Francisco back into the Super Bowl, as the franchise looks to win its sixth Lombardi Trophy.

Did you know? During the 2022 NFL Draft, Brock Purdy earned the distinction of "Mr. Irrelevant," which is the nickname given to the player who is picked last in each year's draft. Selected by San Francisco with the 262nd overall pick at the end of the 7th Round, most NFL fans and analysts didn't have Purdy on their radar. However, in only his second pro season, the 24-year-old has already made his first Pro Bowl and has a chance to lead his team to a Lombardi Trophy in Super Bowl LVIII.
