John Lynch Shares Early Scouting Report on Brock Purdy on Pat McAfee Show

When you think about the day quarterback Brock Purdy was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers - April 30, 2022 - that date may feel like it was several lifetimes ago. That's probably because since Purdy was selected with the final pick (No. 262 overall) of the 2022 NFL Draft, the former 49ers third-string QB has led his team to two NFC Championships and a Super Bowl LVIII appearance. It's also important to note that in between his first two seasons in the NFL, Purdy also had the added challenge of rehabbing from a season-ending elbow surgery he suffered against the Philadelphia Eagles in early 2023. A lot more excitement has been sandwiched in between, but the point is, a lot of good things have happened with Purdy taking over as the 49ers starting quarterback.
