Breece Hall and Brock Purdy are both stars, but their journey to the NFL was quite different.

Hall made it to the league as a second-round pick, and it didn’t take long before he established himself as a key contributor to the New York Jets’ offense and was considered to be one of the stars of the future.

Purdy, on the other hand, was literally the last pick of the NFL Draft, and while some thought of him as an afterthought, he continued to do his work and was fortunate enough to find his way to the football field.

Now, the former Iowa State stars are about to square off in the pros.

So, until the game is done with, he’s cutting off all communications with him.

That’s the beauty of sports, especially this league.

There are just so many storylines and players who’ve crossed paths with others at some point.

Now, it’ll be interesting to see who ends up getting bragging rights and whether they’re going to talk to each other after the game.
