Justin Bethel, NFL Draft Prospect, Shows Off INSANE Vertical

by at . Comments

Justin Bethel, a defensive back from Presbyterian College and NFL draft hopeful, may never make it to the pros - but at least he's made an awesome viral video.

Prepping for workouts he hopes will earn him a spot on an NFL team next fall, the football star was caught on video jumping onto boxes five feet into the air.

That's a vertical leap of 60 inches. Yes, six-zero.

Bethel is a pretty legit player, too. He was named Big South Defensive Player of the Year, recording 87 total tackles with 3.5 tackles for a loss, one sack, a forced fumble, three blocked kicks, four interceptions and a punt return touchdown.

Athletic, competitive and versatile, while possessing strong character, motivation, intelligence and work ethic, some scouts say he could be a draft sleeper.

Here's hoping, if only for more clips like this.
