Chase Winovich College career
Winovich began his Michigan career as a freshman linebacker, switched to tight end as a sophomore (for new coach Jim Harbaugh) before settling at the defensive line in 2016. He wore number 59 as a linebacker and 44 as a tight end (who also practiced at fullback). He did not appear in any games for the 2014 Michigan Wolverines, appeared in 6 for the 2015 Wolverines and appeared in 13, starting 2 at defensive end for the 2016 Wolverines.
In the spring and summer of 2017, Winovich took ballet lessons in order to improve his ability to shift his weight and control his body. He also studied Ju-jitsu in the summer to improve his agility. On September 23, 2017, Winovich had 4 tackles for a loss, including 3 quarterback sacks against 2017 Purdue Boilermakers football team, earning Co-Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week.
The performance also earned him recognition like the Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week (Michigan’s 7th such honoree since 2014 and 3rd on defense). During the 2017 season, Winovich set a career high in tackles with 74.
Winovich’s 17.0 tackles for loss lead Michigan and the Big Ten and ranks tied for 11th in a single season in program history, while his 8.0 sacks are tied for most in the league. Following his redshirt junior season, Winovich earned 2017 All-Big Ten team recognition from the media (first team) and coaches (second team). On January 3 it was announced that Winovich would return for the fifth year at Michigan.
On October 1, Winovich earned his second Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week recognition after recording 8 solo tackles and a sack to help Michigan overcome a 17-point deficit against Northwestern. During the 2018 season, Winovich recorded 62 tackles to rank third among Wolverines and first among defensive linemen, and 14.5 tackles for loss to lead the team. Following the season, he was named to the 2018 All-Big Ten defensive first-team by both the coaches and media.
Winovich earned 2018 College Football All-America Team second team recognition by the Walter Camp Football Foundation, American Football Coaches Association and College Football News. He earned third-team recognition from the Associated Press.

Since teaming up with The ChadTough Foundation prior to the 2017 Michigan football season, Winovich has worked to increase awareness about DIPG. In December 2017, Winovich and several of his teammates and coaches dyed their hair orange for the 2018 Outback Bowl in order to raise over $200,000 for the ChadTough Foundation. He has also participated in Dancing with the Michigan Stars, which raised over $143,000.
Chase Winovich Draft Projection
Patriots take Michigan’s Chase Winovich in Round 3 of NFL draft
Chase Winovich’s journey to the NFL was long and full of twists and turns — and ended Friday night when the Michigan defensive end was drafted by the New England Patriots in the third round, 77th overall, in the 2019 NFL draft.
He’s the third Wolverine drafted this year, behind fellow defenders Devin Bush (10th overall) and Rashan Gary (12th overall).
Winovich, a 6-foot-3, 256-pound defensive end, was commonly projected as a second-round pick leading into the draft after a stellar senior season with the Wolverines this fall. He improved his draft stock this winter after participating at the NFL combine, where he ran a 4.59-second 40-yard dash and put up a 4.11 second shuttle time. At the next level, Winovich projects as a potential stand-up outside linebacker who can rush the passer.
Few could have predicted this several years ago when Winovich was a converted tight end who struggled to earn playing time on special teams, let alone make the depth chart.
Winovich, a former 4-star recruit from Thomas Jefferson High School in Clairton, Pennsylvania, signed with Michigan in 2014 as part of former coach Brady Hoke’s final recruiting class. In his first year on campus, Winovich struggled to keep weight; in an interview with ESPN this past fall, he recalled he was so light by the end of his freshman year that he nearly weighed less than the minimum required to participate in a team workout.
Winovich’s second year on campus was hardly more successful. At the request of the new coaching staff, Winovich switched to tight end and spent most of his time on the scout team. He found a sliver of playing time on special teams later that season, before seeing several snaps at tight end in Michigan’s 41-7 blowout victory over Florida in the Capital One Bowl.
That offseason, Winovich once again switched positions, this time finding a permanent home at defensive end. He was a rotational player during the 2016 season, tallying 32 tackles (8 for loss) and 5.5 sacks despite playing limited snaps. As a redshirt junior in 2017, he took over the starting role and was named to the All-Big Ten team while recording 73 tackles (19 for loss) and 8.5 sacks.
Following his fourth year at Michigan, Winovich chose to return for a fifth year over going pro. In his final season, he was a unanimous first-team All-Big Ten nominee and tallied 59 tackles (15.5 for loss) and 5.0 sacks while battling injuries toward the end of the year.
While Winovich was at times a dominant player whose production the past two seasons shot him up to Michigan’s record books, he may be just as well known for his conduct off the field. Winovich became instantly recognizable due to his shoulder-length blonde hair; he dyed his hair orange in 2018 for a fundraiser for the ChadTough Foundation, helping raise $211,246.
Winovich was also an outspoken player who coined phrases such as “revenge tour,” which described Michigan’s approach to a three-game stretch this past season against Wisconsin, Michigan State and Penn State — all teams that beat the Wolverines in 2017. And after Michigan beat the Spartans this past October, Winovich called Michigan State “little brother.”
Combine everything that made Winovich who he is — the confidence, bluntness, motor, all of it — and you have one of the more recognizable players of the Jim Harbaugh era. Not bad for a former scout team tight end.
“I love Michigan, the school, so much,” Winovich told reporters in December. “It’s literally the first thing that I have loved outside of my family.”

Chase Winovich Injury
Michigan football’s Chase Winovich to miss Senior Bowl with injury
Former Michigan football star defensive end Chase Winovich won’t play in the Senior Bowl next week due to an ankle injury.
Senior Bowl executive director Jim Nagy confirmed the news to the Free Press on Thursday. Winovich had initially accepted an invitation to participate in the annual pre-NFL Draft showcase but pulled out this week due to the injury.
U-M’s most valuable player last season, Winovich recorded 69 tackles (17 for a loss) and five sacks as a fifth-year senior in 2018. He made 79 tackles (18.5 for a loss) and eight sacks as a junior in 2017.
Winovich’s position in the NFL will be an interesting one, as some have projected the 6-foot-3, 255-pounder to be an outside linebacker. Though it’s possible he could be an edge rusher in a four-man front.
Mel Kiper Jr. has Winovich rated as the No. 5 outside linebacker prospect available in the upcoming draft.
Former Michigan running back Karan Higdon is expected to be a participant in next week’s event for the North team. The game is set for Jan. 26 (2:30 p.m., NFL Network).
Former U-M players Juwann Bushell-Beatty and Tyree Kinnel have been participating in East-West Shrine Game practices this week.
