Just who in the Seven Hells is Nick Mullens? Even though it was against OAK, that was a pretty stellar start by a guy who I’ve never heard of before. Does this guy’s career have any legs? Who’s got the low down?

Nick Mullens - QB - 49ers
The Press Democrat reports Nick Mullens will "most likely" start Week 10 against the Giants.
The 49ers plan to wait until next week to announce their starter. Mullen had one of the better debuts in league history Thursday night, but it came against a barely-there Raiders defense. With C.J. Beathard trending down before his injury, the 49ers seem likely to stay with Mullen for another game. In a plus matchup with the Giants, Mullens is on the Week 10 streaming radar.

He’s the new Shaun Hill
Guess I was wrong Drummer it was this thread I posted in. ?There were a couple pretty lucky plays that netted big yards on short passes, the 70 some yard pass to Kittles was an ill advised pass. Had turnover issues in the preseason also. Temper your excitement.
Nick Mullens completed 27-of-39 passes for 250 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the 49ers' 27-23, Week 10 loss to the Giants.
Things didn't go nearly as swimmingly as they did for Mullens in his NFL debut last week against the Raiders. The league got some tape on him, and the Giants, unlike the Raiders, got some pressure, even though Mullens wasn't sacked. Both of Mullens' interceptions were on tipped balls by LB B.J. Goodson, so they weren't entirely the quarterback's fault. He still was able to move the ball with decent success, but Matt Breida on the ground was the star of the offense in this one. Mullens' score was an 11-yard hookup to Breida, who made a nice grab at the goal line. The Niners head on their bye week and will host the Bucs in Week 12. We'd guess it'll be Mullens again.

Agreed. I said earlier in this thread that OAK was not a fair gauge, but NYG came to play and it was tougher sledding and Mullens played well.I thought the kid looked fairly good last night for his second start. His two starts look to match up more than adequately with the four first rounders this year. Now I temper that given his level of competition on defense, but I am encouraged.
Coach Kyle Shanahan said Nick Mullens will continue to be the 49ers' starting quarterback until he says otherwise.
That means Mullens will be the starter coming out of the 49ers' Week 11 bye when they visit Tampa Bay. The second-year UDFA took advantage of the tanking Raiders in his debut two weeks ago, and he played well enough on Monday to keep the job over C.J. Beathard. In total, Mullens has completed 70% of his passes for 512 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions.

Coach Kyle Shanahan announced Nick Mullens will start Week 13 at the Seahawks.
Mullens figures to have a much tighter leash this time around after regressing in back-to-back starts against the Giants and then at the Bucs after his coming out party game against the Raiders in Week 9. Mullens 45-of-71 (63.3%) for 471 yards (6.63 YPA) with two touchdowns and four picks the last two weeks. C.J. Beathard is healthy and ready to roll should Mullens again flop in Seattle.

NICK MULLENS QB, SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS
49ers GM John Lynch said there have been no discussions regarding trading either Nick Mullens or C.J. Beathard.
Although no calls have been made just yet, Lynch did acknowledge that this is the time of the year when teams start discussing potential deals leading into final cuts. With three quarterbacks under contract, it's very likely one is shipped elsewhere prior to Week 1. Mullens outright out-played Beathard last season, but the latter still has the better athletic profile and pedigree. Either would be a serviceable backup in a Kyle Shanahan-led O.

Go to the link for the rest of the story with speculation on what they could get in return....Last season, the 49ers were one of a select few NFL teams that chose to keep three quarterbacks on the active roster.
Behind Jimmy Garoppolo, general manager John Lynch elected to retain both C.J. Beathard and Nick Mullens throughout the season.
Lynch has spoken about potentially trading one of his backups in recent months, but as The Athletic's Michael Lombardi noted on his podcast, the Niners clearly hold one of them in very high regard.
"There was about three teams trying to trade for Kyle Allen," Lombardi said on The GM Shuffle podcast. "You know what's interesting about the Kyle Allen trade? This is really interesting. The 49ers got a bunch of phone calls - when I say a bunch, a couple of teams - on Nick Mullens, the backup quarterback in San Francisco. Nick Mullens. They were asking about him, and they turned down every trade offer for Nick Mullens. They wouldn't trade him.
"Think about that. Think about that. Nick Mullens was like - Cam Newton had no value, [and] Nick Mullens [is] untradeable. Just put that in perspective for a while. Digest that."
Nick Mullens, according to Football Outsiders's Deep Ball Project, threw a very good deep ball in a very limited sample size the season he started for the 49ers after Jimmy G went down.NFL rumors: 49ers rejected several Nick Mullens offseason trade offers
