Read Time:1 Minute, 31 Second

Brock Purdy’s stint because the 49ers’ beginning quarterback within the common season was transient, however his productiveness in 5 begins and a sixth sport the place he took a majority of the snaps underneath heart was profitable sufficient to earn him All-Rookie honors from the Professional Soccer Writers of America.

The PFWA listed Purdy because the QB on the 27-player roster that features 11 on offense, 11 on protection and 5 particular groups choices.

Purdy got here on in Week 13 when Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a damaged foot. He accomplished 25-of-37 throws for 210 yards with two touchdowns and one interception whereas main the 49ers to a 33-17 win over the Dolphins. He didn’t take his foot off the fuel after that, going 5-0 as a starter whereas finishing 68.6 % of his throws for 1,098 yards with 11 touchdowns and two interceptions within the common season.

Nonetheless, the 49ers’ rookie sign caller didn’t have a lot competitors from his fellow first-year QBs. Solely 4 rookie quarterbacks threw greater than 100 passes this 12 months: Purdy, Pittsburgh’s Kenny Pickett, Atlanta’s Desmond Ridder and Miami’s Skylar Thompson.
