“It was extremely successful,” Shanahan said at the annual league meeting. “I mean, look at his record. I know he had a hard time staying healthy with us.

Fishing for QBs: 49ers’ Clelin Ferrell explains unique sack celebration

“I grew up fishing ever since I was a little kid. And Brian Robison, who was a D-end for the Vikings, I remember as a little kid, I watched him.

Texans coach DeMeco Ryans reveals how Brock Purdy turned heads with the 49ers

“From the player, you just see him coming into the spring, you really don’t know who he is,” said Ryans. “He’s Mr. Irrelevant, last picked, and you weren’t expecting much. You continue to see this guy just make some throws in practice, you’re like, whoa, and it’s eye opening, and we continued to go through training camp, we go through the season, and with him being our scout team quarterback, he’s fitting some balls in and he’s making some very difficult throws, making some nice plays, moving throughout the pocket, scrambling, still creating on the move.”

One of the biggest endorsements came from All-Pro linebacker Fred Warner, who was lauding Purdy as “legit.”

Said Ryans: “He had that kind of ‘it’ factor that I was talking about earlier when the defenders, they see it, and they notice it, and they want to get behind the guy. That’s what Brock had. He had the ‘it’ factor where he had that play-making ability to where it galvanized the defense.”
