Chase Minnifield, CB Virginia Scouting Report

Chase Minnifield, CB Virginia [HT- 6’0 WT- 190 4.50 projected 40]

Positives- Chase is a solidly built, cover corner with a good sized frame…He posses a natural ability to find the ball and mirror the Receiver…He has a strong upper body (hands/arms) and can hit/jam the Receiver at the line, and in some cases, off the route/play…He has an Elite level football IQ and knows where his help (Safety) and the are/or will be at and place himself accordingly…Natural athletic ability and times his jumps well…Chase has an above average tackling ability and will take good angles in the run game, and is willing to come down and put a helmet on a helmet.

Negatives- Chase only has average top-end speed and can lose a quick Receiver…He does get high in his backpedal more often than most, and he does lack the snap/change of pace to make up for the mistakes he can/will make…Needs to add muscle to his frame (bottom half) and learn be more consistent on his mirroring (but this can change with coaching/correcting of the backpedal).
