Daniel Jeremiah of the NFL Network reports that “several” personnel men around the league have told him that they would be “very surprised” if the Rams passed on Alabama S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix at the No. 13 overall.
It’s hard to argue with the fit for St. Louis given that they have an obvious need at the safety position and have yet to sign any free agents up to this point.
Clinton-Dix has been a popular pick for the Rams in mock drafts for a few months and is considered by many to be the best safety in this year’s draft class. As of now, it’s hard to imagine him being on the board past the Eagles at No. 22 given that there are a number of teams in need of safety help.
Last year, he totaled 51 tackles, two interceptions and four pass breakups for the Crimson Tide defense.
