Day one of the NFL draft begins Thursday night from in Dallas. 24 hours before things even got started though, former Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield single handedly won the draft with this epic photo he posted on Twitter the eve before his NFL career begins:
In case you aren’t aware of pre-2000 photos, this is a recreation of the same exact epic photo of Hall of Fame QB Brett Favre getting his NFL draft call back in 1991:
“I didn’t ask for a big party, my family set it all up,” Favre said of his draft experience in 2016 via the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel. “I was not invited to New York or anything.”
Mayfield said he grew up idolizing Favre. So this photo does the honor. If Mayfield even becomes half the QB Favre was he would be in great company. Good luck to Baker Mayfield tomorrow.
