Ravens reportedly met with Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

When it comes to Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix’s place in this year’s draft class, two things are clear.

The first is that he’s got the most memorable name of this year’s prospects and the second is that he’s almost certain to hear that memorable name announced as a first-round pick by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on May 8. It’s less clear which team will be making that selection, although Clinton-Dix’s list of visits gives us some idea of who is interested in his services.

Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Ravens recently met with Clinton-Dix and Baltimore appears to be a good fit for the safety. There’s been talk of moving Matt Elam, last year’s first-round pick, to strong safety and Clinton-Dix projects as a free safety that would allow them to make that move.

Clinton-Dix has also met with the Lions and Titans, both of whom select before the Ravens will be on the board with the 17th overall pick. With the Rams and Bears also picking before Baltimore and potentially looking for safeties, Clinton-Dix could wind up going too early to be Elam’s running mate unless Baltimore decides to move up the board.

  1. Not a ravens fan but I am not sure you can justify back to back years of 1st round safties. I would think they, like most teams, have enough needs where filling another spot makes sense.

  2. Unless the Ravens trade up, Clinton-Dix better not make it passed the Bears at #14. Bears’ safety play was historically bad last season and they’ve still not done enough this off season to address that positions(s).

    I’d also be fine with them taking Calvin Pryor. Him or Clinton-Dix…

  3. Ozzie will take the best player available within reason. Position won’t matter. He proves this over and over.

    Took heap while Sharpe was here.

    Took rice while mcgahee was here. Etc

  4. Depending who is available, the Ravens will take either ClintonDix, Moseley or Zack Martin in the first round. If Pryor is available I do not think that they will take him since other players maybe graded higher on their board. They could go for Jimmie Ward in the second round to fill FS.

  5. I guess Ozzie hasn’t finally figured out that the Alabama player pipeline has been dried
    up for a couple years now , but he still continues to draw from that well

  6. The Ravens would be fools to pass up on a QB at least in the 2nd round, with Flacco’s mediocrity and pay being at opposite ends….I’d say first round here but I doubt any of the good ones will last, though they are high on Bridgewater and his stock has been falling.
