Baker Mayfield recreates classic Brett Favre draft photo

Hopefully this doesn't mean jorts are coming back. 

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield recreated a famous Brett Favre draft night photo Wednesday and posted it on Twitter. 

Mayfield, one of the top quarterback prospects in the country, posted the photo on the eve of the NFL Draft, where he's expected to be a high pick. 

The classic photo shows Favre lying on a bed surrounded by friends and family as he took the draft night call from the Atlanta Falcons. 

Mayfield recreated the photo, jean shorts, homemade t-shirts, wood-paneled walls and all. 

“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,” read the caption in Mayfield's tweet.

According to ESPN, the Mayfield family were fans of Favre and the Green Bay Packers while growing up in Texas.
