A Look Back at Brett Favre’s Draft Day Phone Call in 1991
Brett Favre now is immortalized in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but back in 1991, he was just trying to get drafted.
Throughout his illustrious career there are many iconic photos of Favre leading the Packers to countless victories at Lambeau Field and throughout the NFL stadiums he played in.
However, one of my favorite photos of Favre though came back in 1991 on the day he was drafted.
The picture I'm talking about is a scene we've come a custom to in which the call comes in to the draftee and we get to see them celebrate with their friends and family.
All that said, I don't recall any other draft day call picture being of the draftee in their bedroom and on their bed.
Favre was a one of a kind player and this draft day call picture is one of a kind as well.
Some of my favorite parts include the short jorts, Favre's gold chain, the shotgun on the wall and of course the red solo cups.
Favre was selected in the second round of the 1991 draft by the Atlanta Falcons with the 33rd overall pick.
