You may not know it with the 49ers sitting at 4-10, but rookie Nick Mullens has fared very nicely in his first taste of NFL action.

Undrafted out of Southern Miss in 2017, Mullens was finally inserted under center this year after taking over the reins in Week 9 — and he hasn’t looked back since.

In six starts, Mullens has notched a 3-3 record, but more noteworthy are his impressive numbers. In fact, since taking his very first snap, the 23-year-old ranks sixth in football in passing yards per game (292.3) and third in yards per attempt (8.64) within that span while completing 64.5% of his throws. Overall, he’s amassed a desirable 96.0 passer rating.

However, Sunday’s penultimate game of the season will bring about Mullens’ biggest challenge to date when he goes toe-to-toe with a very dangerous Bears defense that just might be the best in the league.
