Brock Purdy uplifts ‘Mr. Irrelevant’ title as he reaches Super Bowl –...

Every year at the Lowsman Banquet, the capstone event of Irrelevant Week in Newport Beach, the first fans of the NFL draft’s final pick make bold predictions for his future. Endorsement deals, Pro Bowl selections, Super Bowl appearances and MVPs.

Most of the time, these predictions for “Mr. Irrelevant” go unfulfilled. But when the San Francisco 49ers are led Sunday into the Super Bowl in Las Vegas by starting quarterback Brock Purdy, the last selection of the 2022 draft, a half-century-old mission statement will be fulfilled.

“This is like our dream,” said Melanie Fitch, the CEO of Irrelevant Week. “We’ve been waiting 48 years for Santa Claus to come down the chimney and all of a sudden there’s presents there. So we’re excited. He’s there and he has a chance to win the Super Bowl.”
