Hasean "Ha-Ha" Clinton-Dix was drafted 21st overall by the Green Bay Packers in the 2014 NFL draft. Clinton-Dix established himself as a star at Alabama, and his talent was too much for the Packers to overcome. 

Clinton-Dix emerged as a bona fide star with the Crimson Tide, leading their talented secondary as a free safety. His hard-hitting, aggressive style served him well, turning him into a consensus All-American in 2013.

The Crimson Tide standout is as athletic as they come, with long arms that further aid his aggressive style of play. He's a ball hawk, with great instincts for the play, and he moves quickly and decisively when he wants to make a play. He ranks as one of the hardest hitters in the draft.

But Clinton-Dix's style is a double-edged sword. His aggressiveness often leaves him exposed in coverage and makes him vulnerable to fakes and elusive runners. He sometimes struggles to wrap up on tackles, trying instead for the big hit. 

Will Clinton-Dix become the star many see him turning into? Or will his aggressiveness cost him dearly in the NFL? Watch as our Draft experts discuss his ceiling, and what he brings to the pros as a rookie.
