Baker Mayfield Recreates Brett Favre's Draft-Day Photo
NORMAN, Oklahoma - The first day of the NFL draft is here and former OU quarterback Baker Mayfield has recreated Brett Farve's famous NFL draft photo.
“There are those people who are in your corner no matter what, you can’t do any wrong, even when you do wrong. And then there are those people that no matter what you do they’re going to dislike you and that’s not going to change.” - Brett Favre #DraftEve #MMO pic.twitter.com/6bCE9SxqI6— Baker Mayfield (@bakermayfield) April 26, 2018
Farve had to wait until the sixth pick of the second round, he was later traded to the Packers after his rookie season which launched his Hall of Fame career.
Baker's re-creation was posted Wednesday and includes lots of elements from the original photo, even the jean shorts.
The first round of the NFL draft gets underway at 7 p.m. at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
