Brock Purdy, the final player selected in the 2022 NFL Draft, familiar territory for a youngster who has exceeded expectations his entire career. Much like NFL great Tom Brady did when he overcame a modest draft position to emerge as a league sensation, Purdy, the so-called Mr.

Irrelevant, has taken his drafted position and led the San Francisco 49ers to strong playoff runs that, through two seasons, include an NFC Championship and Super Bowl. This was a meteoric rise, much like Brady's in his storied career, starting as a sixth-round pick.

That's why two-time Super Bowl champion and former teammate of Tom Brady, Logan Ryan, raised his high expectations earlier this week about Purdy's financial future in the league. In a discussion that was aired on the "All Facts, No Breaks" podcast, Ryan predicted that Purdy will not just be here to stay but will surely be one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the NFL.

"He's going to get a big payday, one that will surprise everyone," Ryan said. "It's not just a fluke. He's proved he's a key player who's here to stay."

Purdy's Potential Payday

Based on the resume and potential he carries, the next contract for Purdy could blow the lid off.

Analysts say he could get a deal that places him among the top earners in the league, likely anywhere around or above the $250 million threshold. Most likely, the deal would be for five years, so it is close to an annual salary of $50 million, putting him financially among the top quarterbacks.

The foundation of a deal so lucrative is not just based on his performance but in comparison to other quarterbacks like Dak Prescott and Kirk Cousins. Both were fourth-round draft picks and have inked deals that put them in the NFL's top 12 salary rankings, with Prescott at $160 million and Cousins at $180 million.

Yet, Purdy's success in the playoffs and his youth will also give him leverage that could increase his value on the market even more. If the NFL salary cap keeps going up and teams continue to pour more and more money into franchise quarterbacks, the upcoming contract negotiations for Purdy will be worth tracking.

His ability to outplay more-heralded quarterbacks in key games will have gained him not just admirers but a financial package commensurate with his unexpected and heretofore unmatched rise to prominence.
