Purcell spent his first three seasons in the league with the 49ers after joining the team as an undrafted free agent. During the 2016 campaign, Purcell played in 15 games (five starts), tallying 26 tackles and a forced fumble.

Purcell appeared in 15 games for the 49ers last season, starting five of them, and tallied 26 total tackles and one forced fumble. He'll likely have to settle for a rotational role once again in 2017 given the team's recent acquisition of Earl Mitchell.

49ers' Mike Purcell: Starts at nose tackle Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Purcell was listed as the starting nose tackle on the 49ers' unofficial depth chart that was released Tuesday.

Purcell got the surprising nod as a starter over upstart rookie DeForest Buckner. He won't provide a whole lot of value outside of a handful of tackles as a nose tackle in a 3-4 defense. Purcell figures to start until Glenn Dorsey (knee) is healthy enough to return or the aforementioned Buckner gets elevated into the starting lineup.
