Draft Scout Justin Bethel News
10/26/15 - CB Justin Bethel can be a starting NFL cornerback for just about any team. Although he gave up a 31-yard completion to wide receiver Chris Givens down the right sideline that let Baltimore have some last-minute hope, Bethel did a bang-up job stepping in after Jerraud Powers went down with a pulled hamstring. "I was prepared to play corner and have enough practice for it and know I have the skill set for it," said Bethel, who forced one fumble and recovered two. "There was one play I wish I could take back, but other than that, I was prepared for it."

Bethel has a handful of packages designed for him to come in and play during nickel situations, but the opportunity never presented itself until Sunday against the 49ers. "He is the ultimate team guy," Cardinals defensive coordinator James Bettcher said. "You see all the plays he makes on special teams and he just waited his turn." Bethel has made the Pro Bowl twice as a special teams gunner.

"He's starting to get his hands on balls and he's playing a lot more confidently," Arians said. "You can see the way he walks around the locker room. I think going to the Pro Bowl added some swagger to him, which he needed desperately."
