Video: Daniel Jeremiah, Chris Mortensen shared nice moment during NFL Draft

Chris Mortensen

The 2020 NFL Draft was carried on multiple networks due to the extenuating circumstances surrounding the event, and that allowed for a heartwarming moment between Daniel Jeremiah and Chris Mortensen.

Jeremiah is a former NFL scout who now works for NFL Network, while ESPN’s Mortensen has been one of the most respected NFL insiders in the media industry for decades. During the seventh and final round of the draft on Saturday, Jeremiah spoke to Mortensen on the air and became emotional while explaining to viewers how much Mortensen has helped his career.

Jeremiah revealed that Mortensen flew him out to the NFL Draft about 20 years ago and gave him a job answering phones. Mortensen then helped Jeremiah land a job with ESPN, which jump-started Jeremiah’s media career.

Mortensen added some more context with a tweet, noting that he met Jeremiah through Jeremiah’s father David, who is a pastor.

No one really knew what to expect from the NFL Draft this year, but the league ultimately did a great job with it. The format and timing led to some outstanding ratings, and it also gave fans the opportunity to see some unique exchanges like the one between Jeremiah and Mortensen.
