Chargers Secondary Coach Running Alabama Pro Day Drills

The San Diego Chargers will be looking to add some help in the secondary during the draft and one school that the team has an extra eye out during their Pro Day today is Alabama. Chargers secondary coach, Ron Milus, is in Alabama running the Pro Day drills for their secondary, per Chase Goodbread.

Milus is running the drills for HaHa Clinton-Dix and possible late rounder Deion Belue. Clinton-Dix played safety for the Crimson Tide and could be a real option for the team, but he would have to be selected in the first round of the draft. Depending on what the Chargers do in free agency, Clinton-Dix would be a huge upgrade in our secondary despite having Jahleel Addae taking over the strong safety spot on the team.

Clinton-Dix would have more range in the secondary over Addae. He is more of a free safety, but with teams passing the crap out of the ball, it might be better to have more safeties that can cover the tight ends and cover the back-end of the field.

With Peyton Manning in our division, we need to get all the help that we can get in the secondary. Adding a player with the skills of Clinton-Dix would always be appreciated. We just need to find that corner for our defense first.

Clinton-Dix might not be the perfect fit, but he might start to look like a better fit after free agency is complete.

    I still don’t see safety as a need we still have Taylor who hasn’t showed what he can do because of injury.

    • Derek

      he’s looking alot like taylor mays this season will be a determination of who he is but youre right there are more dire needs on our defense that should be addressed in the 1st

    • joerockt

      Exactly. He hasn’t shown what he can do so how do we know what he can do? We do know he can get easily injured. Weddle needs a solid companion. Its a need.

      • Eli Rodriguez

        DIdnt he only play one game before getting hurt? Either way were still stuck with him. Addae played well enough for an undrafted player. I say we give him another shot. I wouldnt want to use a 1st rounder on a safety

    Interesting, good find Ernie

  • Marcel West-Bailey

    Chargers reach two-year deal with ex-Steelers TE David Johnson. Primarily a blocker. Has experience at fullback, too.

    Mayock talked about some teams seeing him as a CB. Maybe SD is one of those teams.
