49ers Select QB Brock Purdy As This Year’s Mr. Irrelevant

Meet Brock Purdy, the 2022 NFL draft’s Mr. Irrelevant.

San Francisco, at No. 262, selected the Iowa State quarterback with its (and the draft’s) last selection, ending a wild and three-day draft process with tons of memorable trades and general managers orchestrating the future of their respective franchises. 

The “Mr. Irrelevant” title originated in 1976 when former USC and Colts wide receiver Paul Salata generated a string of events that would go on to become known as “Irrelevant Week” in celebrating the draft’s final pick. Salata’s tradition has been carried on each year in the NFL draft.
