 Antoine Bethea Grade: 3.4
 Position: S
 Class: Sr
 School: Howard
 Conference: Mid-Eastern Athletic
 Ht., Wt.: 5-11, 203
 40 Time: 4.44
  Selected by: Indianapolis Colts
  Round 6, pick 38 (207 overall)

BIO: First-team All-Conference selection who received All-American mention after totaling 83/5/5. Junior totals included 99/8/3 after a career-high 109 tackles as a sophomore.

POSITIVES: Competitive defensive back best defending the run. Displays a good head for the ball, range in centerfield and speed to the flanks. Fluid flipping his hips, has smooth footwork and a nice burst to the play. Flashes ball skills in zone coverage.

NEGATIVES: Not efficient and takes himself from the action, over-pursuing plays. Late reacting or picking up assignments and offers just marginal skills in man-to-man situations.

ANALYSIS: A productive tackler on the small-school level, Bethea could fit in as a nickel or dime back in a zone system. Must eventually earn his wage on coverage units.

PROJECTION: Mid Fifth Round
