Chase Minnifield, Virginia
Ht: 6'0, Wt: 185 pounds

Strengths: Excels in zone situations where he can use his instincts and quickness. Shows a good amount of range when playing off his man. Plays with a lot of hustle against the run. Takes good routes to the ball and has a lot of heart to make plays.

Weaknesses: Doesn't have the best quick-twitch movements and gets beaten on comeback routes by receivers who can plant and move quickly. Deep speed is suspect. If Minnifield can't win at the line of scrimmage in man, he can be beaten over the top by fast receivers.

Combine quotable: (On his Dad, former Brown Frank Minnifield) [Going to the Browns] would be an awesome situation. I wouldn’t be trying to carry on what my father [did]. I’d try to make my own thing. My goal is to do more than what my dad did. He never got to the Super Bowl with the Browns, so that would be something I would try to do.
