Plenty of corners will fall off the board in the first round, leaving Chase Minnifield right there staring the Minnesota Vikings in the face at the top of round two.
The struggles in the Vikings secondary have been well documented, and there’s no better way to piece it back together than through the draft.
Minnifield is tall, so he’d be able to defend the bigger WRs in the league and has enough closing speed to make up for some mistakes.
Minnesota may wind up selecting Morris Claiborne with the No. 3 overall pick in the first round, but those well-wishers shouldn’t get their hopes up. Matt Kalil will be the Vikes choice there if they decide not to trade down.
It should be noted that Chase’s father, Frank Minnifield, was a very well accomplished cornerback with the Cleveland Browns during the 80s.
