Chase Minnifield to be evaluated for NFL draft

By Steve Yanda

Virginia redshirt junior cornerback Chase Minnifield recently submitted paperwork to an NFL draft advisory board in order to evaluate his potential draft status, Minnifield's father said Thursday.

In all likelihood, Frank Minnifield said in a telephone interview, Chase will return to Virginia next fall for his final season of eligibility.

Earlier this week, Chase Minnifield -- a first-team all-ACC selection this season after tallying six interceptions -- became the first Virginia defensive player to earn all-American honors from Sports Illustrated's online outlet,, since defensive lineman Chris Long in 2007. Minnifield was named to's honorable mention all-American squad. His interception total ranked second in the Atlantic Coast Conference and tied for fourth in the nation.

Minnifield played in all 12 games this season, but dealt with a sprained ankle that forced him to leave Virginia's 55-48 loss Nov. 6 at Duke late in the first quarter. Frank Minnifield said rest was all that was needed to mend his son's ankle and that Chase has returned to full health since the end of the season.
