Brock Purdy, Undersized & Under The Radar, Unfazed by QB1 Role

San Francisco 49ers left tackle Trent Williams says Brock Purdy exudes a confidence that belies your typical rookie quarterback. 

Brock Purdy isn’t just a rookie quarterback. He is a rookie quarterback selected with the final pick of the draft. 

From just squeezing into the league, Brock Purdy now finds himself an NFL starting quarterback for the rest of the season.

He made just the fourth appearance of his career when Jimmy Garoppolo broke his foot on Sunday against Miami. Prudy went 25-of-37 for 210 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

“You come into a game versus one of the best teams in the league and everybody is looking at you to feed off of you,” Trent Williams said. 

“If you come in and you don’t seem confident and you seem very hesitant, then everybody else starts to worry and play hesitant. When you come in and you act like you know what you’re doing and you look like you know what you’re doing, everybody is going to assume you know what you’re doing.

“You would think he’s been in the league 15 years,” Williams added. “If you’re talking, he’ll say, ‘Shut your a– up.’ He ain’t no timid rookie feeling his way around. He will get on your a–. You would think he’s like Peyton Manning or something. Wide receivers not running, you’ll hear him cussing a wide receiver out.”

“When you see him and his makeup and you look at him, an undersized quarterback, ‘Mr. Irrelevant,’ how many ‘Mr. Irrelevants’ make the active roster?” Williams said.

“That’s the only way he could get here. It has to be his attitude, his makeup, his mentality, because it’s not his size. He’s undersized, not a prototypical type of quarterback.”
