Baker Mayfield had his pro day at Oklahoma on Wednesday. The top NFL Draft quarterback prospect looked good.

His outfit, though, drew some headlines. And some criticism, for some reason.

Mayfield wore a karate-kid style bandana as he worked out in front of NFL coaches, scouts and executives. This didn't sit well with a couple of people in the media.

The outfit, seriously, drew some criticism from some. Colin Cowherd questioned the move during his show on Wednesday.

NFL writer Pete Prisco tweeted the following:

I'm not sure how many job interviews take place on a football field, but OK. Mayfield appeared on The Dan Patrick Show on Thursday morning. He was asked about his outfit. "I forgot I couldn't wear my headband to a football function," Mayfield said sarcastically. You can watch his full interview below:

Mayfield is considered to be one of the top quarterback prospects in the 2018 NFL Draft. He's a likely top 10 pick.
