Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Scouting Report

HA HA CLINTON-DIX – S – ALABAMA

HaHa Clinton-Dix

Strengths:

Long safety with an impressive reach. A great tackler who wraps up and rarely misses in space. Displays above average fluidity for the position and can hold his own in man coverage. Shows the ability to locate the ball and make a play on the ball rather than the receiver.

Weaknesses:

Lacks aggressiveness against the run. Struggles to get off blocks and could use more urgency and tenacity when coming down in run support. Can take himself out of plays with poor angles at times. Can be a half-second late to recognize plays. Questionable range to be a center-fielder. Suspended 2 games for borrowing money.

Skills:
1-poor, 2-weak, 3-above average, 4-very good, 5-elite

Athleticism: 3.0
Instincts: 2.5
Coverage: 3.0
Run Support: 2.0
Ball Skills: 3.0
Intangibles: 2.0

Verdict: Meh

While Clinton-Dix has potential as a coverage safety I feel as though he is a bit overrated. I dislike his lack of physicality which I feel is very important for a safety. However, he went to a big school, played on a great defense and his name is easily recognizable. He can be a starter in the NFL, but I don’t envision him ever being much more than an average starter.

Grade: 3rd Round
