Name: Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

Position: Defensive Back

College: University of Alabama Crimson Tide

Height: 6’1”

Weight: 208 pounds

Year: Junior

Alabama defensive back Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is one of the best young defensive backs coming into 2013. Last year he led the SEC with five interceptions and had 37 tackles. Not too bad for a true sophomore. He also played in all 14 games last year and fared extremely well in the BCS Championship game versus the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. He had an interception in the game, which extended his consecutive games with an interception to three.

Clinton-Dix was one of the most highly touted incoming defensive backs coming into the college ranks two years ago, as he was nearly the number one safety on all three major recruiting websites. Despite coming from Orlando, FL and being heavily recruited to stay in state and play for the University of Florida Gators, he chose to take his talents to Tuscaloosa and play for head coach Nick Saban.

The future is looking extremely bright for this kid, and if he were to declare for the 2014 NFL, Clinton-Dix could be a top 15 pick, or he could quickly sneak into the top 10 if a team needs a safety that bad.  To any pro team that needs a safety, all you need to know is that he is big, physical, a game changer and easily will make your secondary intimidating.

All and all, it should be a very interesting 2013 for Ha Ha Clinton Dix and the Alabama Crimson Tide, as they could be competing for their third consecutive BCS title and their defense is the main reason why.
