NFL Draft Scouting Report: Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix

 

 

With the offseason underway, it is draft/free agency season. In this segment, “Scouting Report”, I will be posting scouting reports of who I believe the Cowboys should covet in the 2014 NFL Draft. Stay tuned daily, as I will be writing a few per day.

Background

On to the safeties for the SportDFW’s scouting reports! Up first is Ha’Sean Clinton-Dix. You may know him as Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. Either way, the kid is an absolute monster. He is the best safety in this class, with Calvin Pryor trailing behind him. With the void at the safety position, Clinton-Dix will most definitely be on the Cowboys’ radar.

Measurements

– 6-1, 208 pounds

– 4.45 40-yard dash

Info

– Was suspended in October

– First team All-SEC

– Took over previous safeties’ jobs (Mark Barron & Robert Lester)

Strengths

– Amazing range

– Great tackler

– Great coverage

– Good tenacity

– Displays his nasty attitude on the field

– Reads plays extremely well

– Can make a ton of plays all over the field

– Fast & explosive

– Great instincts

Weaknesses

– Off the field issues

– A bit young

– Needs to put on some weight

The Fit

If the Cowboys stay at #16/17, Clinton-Dix is definitely the guy for the Cowboys to pick. With talented players such as Brandon Carr & Barry Church in need of a rejuvenation, Clinton-Dix could make an instant impact on this secondary. That is what this team is looking for, players who will make an “instant impact”.

Scout Grade: 92/100
