ESPN staff pays tribute to Chris Mortensen during NFL draft
ESPN staffers paid tribute to NFL reporter Chris Mortensen during their broadcast of the NFL draft on Thursday night.
Mortensen has taken a break from on-air work with ESPN as he undergoes treatment for stage 4 throat cancer.
Mortensen starred in a new Gatorade ad campaign that salutes Peyton Manning, just a few months after Mortensen was the first to break the news of the NFL quarterback's retirement.
Fellow ESPN insider Adam Schefter shared a photo of them at last year's NFL draft.
The second and third round of the NFL draft will take place on Friday.
