The San Francisco 49ers UDFA draft class is finalized after signing running back Salvon Ahmed out of Washington on Friday to a three-year deal. One of the ten members, one was quarterback Broc Rutter. According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the 49ers had spent all but $279 of their undrafted rookie bonus pool last weekend, so they gave Rutter an unexpected welcome gift to the NFL.
Rutter expects to be the trendy pick as QB3. Rutter dominated the D3 scene en route to winning a national title. Rutter threw for over 8,000 yards and had 86 touchdowns compared to just eight interceptions during his final two seasons. Those are video game numbers. Rutter believes he’s in the perfect landing spot:
“They are such a great organization; their offensive system fits my game really well. Learning from their coaches is huge for me, and my growth as a quarterback. It’s really cool because not many guys get the opportunity. I’m aware and lucky and prepared to make most of this. It’s been a super cool journey. I’ve been trying to soak it in, but it’s still so surreal and happened so quickly. I need to take time to recap everything and think about all we accomplished, not only me, but our team, school, and everything.”
Rutter said Robbie Gould called him Saturday night to welcome him to the team. Rutter grew up in Chicago, so we watched Gould on the Bears mentioned how grateful he was to have Gould reach out. Rutter also mentioned in the article how he’s already started to dive into the 49ers playbook.
