I'm not sure I buy the comparison because Purdy is so much better than Tate ever wasReminds me a lot of Drew Tate if looking for comps to modern IOWA QBs. That is a huge compliment coming from an IOWA fan. Drew’s team really missed on expectations his senior year, but a lot of things went the wrong way at the wrong times.
Brock is a great playmaker with his feet, better than Drew, but Drew was better at the long ball and in traffic.
I’m not saying Tate was better, but Brock has Breece and Drew had Sam Brownlee who led the team with 275 yards rushing.
Drew won a B10 title and it is equivalent to Brock’s B12 reg season title because they didn’t have title games then, . Brock got a Fiesta bowl ring.
