Alabama Crimson Tide defensive back Ha

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix – Safety, Alabama, 6-1, 208, (4.54)

Safety could arguably be the Packers biggest need going into next year. M.D. Jennings was benched against Atlanta for Sean Richardson. The Packers are still seeking a playmaker in the defensive backfield since Nick Collins‘ departure.

Clinton-Dix could be that guy. He’s hands-down the best safety in this draft class. He’s an impact player on a top-notch Alamaba defense. He can play in the box and make stops against the run. He can roam the middle of the field, has the speed to close in on receivers, and is aggressive in playing the ball in the air.

Clinton-Dix is currently projected to go in the middle of the first round, which would be perfect for a Green Bay team seeking an impact player to join their secondary.

    Let’s go for HaSean Clinton- Smith. Safety is such a requirement to improve the defense. What kind of a name is Ha Ha, anyway? It’s too bad we can’t reap all this young talent. Tuitt is a monster much needed to be an impact player. These are my first two choices.

      Yeah, I’m with you, Peter. I think both Clinton-Dix and Tuitt would be great fits in the Packers defense. I like the TEs in this draft, but I don’t think Green Bay needs to spend a first round pick on one. I’d like them to go defense in the first round, but that’ll be three years in a row going defense in round one.

      • Peter Maiz

        Well 3 years in a row and another year without a good defense. I wonder.
