3 reasons why Brock Purdy is only going to get better next season

While this past season ended in heartbreak for Brock Purdy and the 49ers, there is reason to believe that we have not yet seen Purdy's ceiling.

Reason No. 1: Brock Purdy will have a full offseason to improve his skills

Last offseason, Brock Purdy was having to rehab his injured throwing elbow. Everything he did was to make sure that his arm was healthy enough to be ready for the start of next season. That did not allow for as much time to improve the other aspects of his game like his footwork or elusiveness.

Purdy spoke about this in his final interview of the year. He talked about wanting to become more elusive and work with some coaches to improve his craft over the course of the offseason.

There obviously does not seem like a ton Purdy can improve on from last offseason, but the fact that he can really focus in on those minor details that can ultimately make all the difference in a close game will prove really valuable for him next season.

A full offseason will also help Purdy more with the mental side of the game going forward and becoming more familiar with Kyle Shanahan's system.
