Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is close with Eagles exec Ed Marynowitz, who was one of main reasons C-D went to 'Bama. Told Marynowitz, "come get me!"— Zach Berman (@ZBerm) May 7, 2014
Clinton-Dix very aware of Eagles organization, history of safety since Brian Dawkins. Close with Damion Square. Would like to be an Eagle— Zach Berman (@ZBerm) May 7, 2014
Cool. Now, of course, this doesn't mean very much. There's no guarantee that Clinton-Dix will be on the board by the time the Eagles pick at No. 22. There's also no guarantee the Eagles feel the same way towards him. What we do know is that the Eagles, Chip Kelly included, attended Alabama's pro day and had a meeting with Clinton-Dix. So there is some kind of interest level there.
The Eagles already have Malcolm Jenkins in place as a starter but the other starting safety job seems to be up for grabs. Nate Allen and Earl Wolff are likely the contenders for that spot, but the Eagles could also opt to add another player from this draft class.
Eagles general manager Howie Roseman did state last week that he feels this year's safety class isn't very strong. This could mean he thinks there's better value in taking a safety early on because it's not a deep class. It could also mean he's not a very big fan of the position in general.
But hey, at least we know what Ha Ha wants!
