Grading System
JAMES BETHEA
Position: CB
Class: Sr
School: California
Conference: Pac-10
Ht., Wt.: 5'9, 196
40 Time: 4.53
Grade: 2.92

BIO: Defensive numbers were 36/1/4 as a senior with a 18.9-yard average on 34 kick returns. Junior totals included 42/4/1 with a 22.9 average on returns.

POSITIVES: Solid cover corner best in zone. Gets off the line with a smooth back pedal and loses nothing in transition. Can flip his hips, runs well laterally and has a head for the ball. Effective backed off the line of scrimmage, keeps the action in front of him and quickly breaks on the pass.

NEGATIVES: Not always willing to throw his body around the field and does more hitting then wrap-up tackling. Loses the pass in the air and not effective in press.

ANALYSIS: Best facing the quarterback, Bethea fits in as a dime cornerback that plays on special teams.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
