Green Bay Packers add HaHa Clinton-Dix to defense


The Green Bay Packers selected some defense with their choice in the draft and took HaHa Clinton-Dix to play safety. The team was looking at getting a receiver, but the New Orleans Saints jumped in front of them in order to take a wide receiver that they may have added. The Saints took Brandin Cooks with the selection in front of the Packers.

Instead of adding a weapon on offense, the Packers decided to beef up their defense with their selection.

Clinton-Dix was one of the top safeties available in the draft and he will be a nice player in their secondary. He will be roaming around and looking to make plays all over the field. He made some big things happen in Alabama and he will be looking to make some big things happen on the field with the Packers.

What do you fans think of the selection of Clinton-Dix with the first round draft choice? Should the team have gone in another direction?

    Excellent pick. Best player available and addresses the Packers’ most urgent need. So glad they took Clinton-Dix. I’m quite surprised that teams who need a safety like the Rams, Bears, Titans, Cowboys and Steelers all passed on him. Pryor may be more flashy with bigger hits, but Clinton-Dix is just as physical and came from the top college program with the top coach. What more could you ask for?

      The bears took kyle fuller who some would view as a potential safety in the NFL. I agree though, I am glad Haha was there at 21!

    Great pick as it sounds like he was the best safety in this draft. My only concern is the low Wonderlic score (15). Not what you want to see from the ‘QB of the defense’.
