Combine profile: Alabama FS HaHa Clinton-Dix

Name: HaHa Clinton-Dix

Position: Free safety

Height/weight: 6-1/208

School/Class: Alabama/Junior

Projected round: 1st

Career highlights: Started nine games in his junior year and was a second-team All-American. He tallied a team-high five interceptions in his sophomore year.

Did you know?: HaHa said at the combine the worst thing about his last name is “the whole President Clinton thing with Monica Lewinsky.” His grandmother started calling him HaHa when he was 3 because Ha’Sean was too difficult for those outside the family to pronounce.

Quotes: "I'm one of the best safeties in the draft because I played in Saban's system, I feel like I'm prepared for the next level and I'm willing to take that challenge." 

Panthers’ level of interest: Clinton-Dix could fall to No. 28, but that’s unlikely. He showed great ball skills in college, but you’d want your free safety to run faster than 4.58 in the 40. Ultimately, Gettleman and his staff demonstrated this past season that they can get help in the defensive backfield through undrafted free agency and small, short-term contracts with veterans.
