2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Chase Minnifield, CB, Virginia
Minnifield has good size for his position, standing at 6'0'' and 185 pounds. He generally runs in the 4.4s in the 40-yard dash and has been clocked as fast as 4.38 from that distance. The Lexington, KY native also has a great vertical leap, so he can play even bigger than his size suggests. Minnifield has a superb nose for the ball and is a big hitter, however he can sometimes get sloppy with his fundamentals and miss tackles. He works well in zone coverage but it remains to be seen if he can be a man-to-man shutdown corner at the next level. Minnifield will likely be an early second-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, although he could sneak into the first round if there is a run on cornerbacks.
