It doesn't seem like a good sign when one of the more promising youngsters on the Redskins roster is an undrafted free agent who missed the entire season with injury, but I think Chase Minnifield has a chance to come in healthy and compete for some playing time next year if he's healthy.
Coming off his original knee injury, Minnifield showed flashes in OTA's and was impressing coaches. On a team with arguably the worst secondary in the league, he definitely has a chance to find his way onto the field.
At this point, all Minnifield has to do is beat out Cedric Griffin or fellow rookie Richard Crawford. That doesn't seem hard. Granted, Washington will probably bring in a few more DBs in the draft, but with some experience in camp under his belt and a year to prepare, Minnifield will definitely get a shot.
Mostly though, the defense is a huge problem right now, and anyone has the chance to step up and compete for a job.
