Overview

Bethel has started four years for the Presbyterian College Blue Hose. He is athletic and possesses good size for the position, but is also regarded as a very heady player who influences receivers with physicality from the boundary corner spot. He is an interesting late-round prospect based on his athletic ability and skills supporting the run.

Analysis

Strengths

Bethel is a very effective pass and run defender, and is physical when tackling and also when up working on the line of scrimmage in man. He has athletic ability that translates well to reacting to the ball in man, and the explosiveness to come down field and make plays in zone.

Weaknesses

There are concerns about the level of competition Bethel faced in college and how much of a learning curve he will have at the next level. He is a smart player but can get caught flat-footed at times in man. He takes false steps off the snap and labors into his back pedal, all things he will need to work on while transitioning into the NFL.
