Ha Ha Clinton-Dix posts solid 40 times


While strong safety Jimmie Ward isn’t able to take part in the combine with his fellow defensive backs on Tuesday, the other top safety prospects are on the field in Indianapolis.

Alabama free safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is on that list and didn’t do anything to hurt himself in the 40-yard dash as he posted unofficial times of 4.50 and 4.52 seconds in his two attempts at the distance. It’s not going to be the fastest of the day, but it is right where a safety praised for his overall athleticism and ability to close on the ball in coverage.

Clinton-Dix’s top competition at free safety is Calvin Pryor of Louisville, who is known as a heavier hitter than Clinton-Dix and calls himself a big fan of Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor. The Alabama product called himself a fan of Pryor’s, but touted his own versatility as a reason why he should be the first safety off the board in May.

“Chance is a big play, a big-time safety. But you also need safeties that can cover slot receivers and also play the deep middle of the field and in the box,” Clinton-Dix said, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “So I think you need more versatile safeties in this league now.”

We’ll find out soon enough whether NFL teams agree with the man with the most memorable name in this year’s draft.

    The Redskins REALLY need help in the backfield, and this kid has the best football name since Jarvis Redwine or Webster Slaughter. SIGN HIM UP!!

    How did I not know there was a guy with that name? I hope his parents are in jail for naming him that.

    Funny you should mention that.

    His parents should have been charged with child abuse for a name like that.

  5. jimmyt says: Feb 25, 2014 10:32 AM

    His name is Ha’Sean. Ha Ha is just his nick name. Ha’Sean is a pretty standard name in the US right?

  6. borisbulldog says: Feb 25, 2014 10:33 AM

    He needs hyphens between each name!

    His brother, LOL Clinton-Dix is a four star high school prospect.

    So the cowboys have an atrocious defense and need a fat safety. This guy would be perfect. So we should all plan on Jerry drafting a defensive tackle instead

    Terrence Brooks looked really impressive to me. He might have a little too much muscle for cardio purposes, but he was fast. fluid and it is apparent he can hit. He looked better than a third round pick from what I saw. Grant it, I’m not a scout.

    They have zero shot at getting Ha Ha, but don’t worry there will be plenty of laughs watching them for years to come!

    I didn’t believe it the first time I read his name. I had to text my buddy, whose an avid NCAA watcher, and be like “is this for real? is there really a guy named HaHa Clinton-Dix?”

  12. lscratchingthesurface says: Feb 25, 2014 11:21 AM

    I hope my chiefs trade up to get him!!! We have many needs but this kid has it all.

  13. garyhd01 says: Feb 25, 2014 11:22 AM

    i am a ram fan and we need a safety bad i will be unhappy if we do not get him and if i was a cowboy fan and wanted a safety whatever you do do not tell jerry he will skip a safety just to prove everyone is wrong

    Dix or Pryor are going to the Packers. Book it.

  15. mrgroovesd says: Feb 25, 2014 11:37 AM

    Gotta love this guys name and going to love hearing it in the NFL. I know NFL commentators will love to say his first name instead of his last name…”Ha Ha with the tackle…” Just like they did with Pacman Jones.

  16. officialgame says: Feb 25, 2014 11:50 AM

    Versatility at safety is the name of the game. Huge fast, explosive tightends coming down the seam and spread offenses have changed the position. As long as a guy covers and is a fundamentally sound tackler he will be drafted high. Blow people up as well and you will be drafted higher.

    This kid would be a perfect fit for MN’s laugher of a 31st ranked defense.

  18. bradwins says: Feb 25, 2014 12:41 PM

    How are people hating on his name? It is one of the best names of all time.

  19. trollaikman8 says: Feb 25, 2014 12:48 PM

    The Cowboys need both of them.

  20. tindeaux says: Feb 25, 2014 12:56 PM

    it’s going to s$_uck if his team is losing and the announcer will have to call out his name “ha ha”…

    But good luck in the draft, bro!

  21. pfic15 says: Feb 25, 2014 1:35 PM

    What a name.

  22. granadafan says: Feb 25, 2014 2:04 PM

    Which circus team is going to draft Haha? The NY Jests or the Dallas Clownboys?

  23. 2064life says: Feb 25, 2014 2:47 PM

    Reminds me of the Key and Peele East/West College Bowl skit…

  24. deltaoracle says: Feb 25, 2014 4:27 PM

    The mean kid on “The Simpsons” would be a fan for sure.

  25. halkim says: Feb 25, 2014 4:43 PM

    What’s so funny?

  26. dwhcic says: Feb 25, 2014 7:13 PM

    Ha Ha. Nice name. Not.

  27. southernpatriots says: Feb 25, 2014 8:33 PM

    Just about every NFL team I know and have watched this past season can use a player like Ha-Ha. If they have him they will have a great quality player and won’t have to go “Wa-wa!” after having such poor defenses we saw amongst many teams in the league this past season.
