Brett Favre responds to Baker Mayfield's NFL Draft throwback photo

Are those Wranglers?

Baker Mayfield could be one of the first players taken in Thursday night's NFL Draft, and the former Oklahoma Sooners quarterback channeled his inner Brett Favre with a fantastic recreation of Favre's classic 1991 draft day photo. 

Favre responded on Twitter by wishing Mayfield luck telling him to "send my Jorts back tomorrow."

The strangest part of Mayfield's recreation is that he already owned the jean shorts he's shown wearing, according to ESPN

Mayfield is among the five most heralded quarterbacks in this year's draft. Joining him are Josh Allen (Wyoming), Sam Darnold (USC), Josh Rosen (UCLA) and Lamar Jackson (Louisville), all of whom Mike Mayock has being drafted within the first 16 picks
