2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama
Pretty good size and strength, but lacking great speed and agility. Very little wasted motion when tracking the quarterback's eyes. Can often get an early jump on routes or at least jar the ball with contact. Getting better against the run and improving as a tackler. Doesn't often over-pursue and stays in lane. Works through traffic well.
His knack of reading the play does lead to better than average opportunities to make plays on the ball. Pretty good hands and good length to knock it away. Can really hold his own in man coverage against tight ends (this is very important in today's NFL). Enough speed to cover the deep half. Above-average pursuit angles. Good feel for zones and almost never caught flat-footed. Tackling is solid. Could afford to add more lower body strength to help him bring down bigger backs. Not the type to look for the huge, highlight reel collision. Wraps up the ball-carrier down to the ground.
Clinton-Dix projects to go somewhere in the teens of the first round in the 2014 NFL Draft.
