Jan 7, 2013; Miami, FL, USA; Alabama Crimson Tide defensive back Ha
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.
