Strengths

High energy. Uses powerful hands to violently shed blockers and get in the backfield. Non-stop motor. Great feet and quickness with the athletic testing to back it up. Can win with speed on the outside and has flashed an inside move. Possesses a sudden dip to disengage. Good eye discipline. Quick to diagnose. Stays low at the point of attack. Tremendous closing burst. Sets the edge against the run. Intelligent. Ideal football character and locker room presence. Clear annoyance to opponents. Put off surgery to play in Michigan’s bowl game. Productive with 34.5 tackles for loss and 13.5 sacks over the past two years.

 

Weaknesses

Average length. Too easily taken out on cut blocks. Can get lost in traffic. Aggressiveness sometimes causes him to be wiped out of the play.

 

NFL comparison

Trent Cole – Effort guys are unique, but like Cole, Chase Winovich has the skillset to eventually develop into an impact player that can impact the passing game and hold up against the run.

 

Conclusion

Overall, Chase Winovich is a relentless edge defender that brings a ton of energy to a defense and should thrive in any system/scheme. It wouldn’t be surprising to see him sneak into the end of the first round and be an immediate contributor for New England or another contender.
