Arizona tabs DB Bethel with sixth-round selection
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) The Arizona Cardinals have selected defensive back Justin Bethel of Presbyterian with the first of their two sixth-round draft picks.
Bethel, 6-feet and 200 pounds, played cornerback in college but could be moved to safety by the Cardinals. He is the second defensive back drafted by Arizona. The Cardinals chose cornerback Jamell Fleming of Oklahoma in the third round.
There is a YouTube video that shows Bethel making a 60-inch vertical leap - that's five feet - flat-footed. Bethel returned an interception for a touchdown against California.
.He was the 177th player chosen in the draft.
