On the eve of the NFL draft, Baker Mayfield turned the clock back and showed that he has a lot of fun with one of the biggest moments of his life, just hours away.
The Heisman Trophy Quarterback posted a photo on Twitter that recreated the well-known Brett Favre image from the 1991 draft when the future Hall of Famer quarterback received a call from the Atlanta Falcons who had just picked him in the second round.
Like the Favre photo, Mayfields was completed with denim shorts, wood paneling, an old-school telephone and family and friends in a small room.

The Mayfields were big fans of Favre and the Green Bay Packers when they grew up in Texas.
Josh Allen, Baker Mayfield or Lamar Jackson? It is not easy. History tells us that evaluating quarterbacks is a crapshoot.
Mel Kiper is among the top 300 of the best in this class and then runs through every position to reach more than 700 players.
Todd McShay continues his board one last time before the 2018 NFL draft begins. It's a class that's rich in QBs in running backs and with four first-graders.
A family member told ESPN's Jake Trotter that the Mayfields from the now-famous Favre photo knew in his bedroom in his childhood home in Mississippi on the night of the 1991 draft, a picture which was made by a local newspaper photographer who eventually spread national magazines and television.
Baker Mayfield and his family thought it would be fun in the days before the draft to restore the shot with family members and friends.
So they hacked the specifics with Mayfield's marketing team. The mother of QB bought wallpaper that looked like the wood paneling in Favre's bedroom. Baker already had denim shorts that resembled those of Favre. They chose photos of Baker in his youth sports days to decorate the wall.
It took three hours to put the "set" together, a family member told Trotter.
The image will probably be remembered much longer than that.
