I'll admit it on behalf of Cheeseheads around the world...we were so nervous that Ha Ha Clinton-Dix would be picked before us. GM Ted Thompson and Coach Mike McCarthy almost ran out of options. Top safety Calvin Pryor and linebackers Ryan Shazier and C.J. Mosley all flew off the board. But then...with the 21st pick in the 2014 NFL Draft...
Happy day! We needed a safety and we got him. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix will look good in the green and gold.
Of course graduating from Alabama's football factory makes him a leader in any pro secondary. Having a smart center-fielder watching everyone's back makes him an instant upgrade for the Pack's defense in which neither safety caught a ball last year.
Remember all those jump balls by Brandon Marshall and Megatron, missed tackles on Adrian Peterson, blown assignments chasing wide open receivers, the "fail mary"?
No more. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is just the beginning. The Packers work their magic again. As always, Green Bay knows how to draft. We all expect to hear the coolest name again and again making big plays as the new starting safety for the Green Bay Packers, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.
