Immediately after the New Orleans Saints selected Ohio State wide receiver Chris Olave with the 11th pick, a photo of his father went viral on social media.

Olave's father was wearing an off-white suit with a matching hat. It was a classy look, but that didn't stop Jack Kennedy of Barstool Sports from cracking a joke about it.

"Olave's dad is fresh off getting a precious artifact stolen back from him by Indiana Jones," Kennedy tweeted.

On Friday morning, Olave responded to that tweet from Kennedy. He replied, "Pops clean."

We'll have to agree with Olave on this one.

Olave had an exceptional career at Ohio State, hauling in 175 passes for 2,702 yards and 35 touchdowns.

The Saints clearly had their sights set on Olave, trading picks No. 16, 98 and 120 to the Washington Commanders just so they can select him.

Olave should form a nice wide receiver duo with Michael Thomas in New Orleans.
