Comparison

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Chicago Bears

Possesses a broad-shouldered frame and has added good mass over the course of his final year of high school. Owns a rocked up, thick physique. Taller than the average safety. Highly versatile player who lined up at six different positions as a junior - safety, corner, linebacker, quarterback, running back, receiver - in addition to returning kicks. Outstanding overall football player who carries his high school team. More than likely projects on defense, at safety or linebacker depending on his ultimate size gains. Has versatility as a back end defender with the ability to roll into the box and defend the run in addition to making plays in coverage. Effective as a blitzer and pass rusher, using his quickness to create disruption behind the line of scrimmage. Flashes play making ability on special teams with several long returns. His ball skills and instincts are on the high end at this point of development. Practices hard and has desirable energy level and toughness. Will need to nail down a permanent position and hone technique at the next level. Projects as a multi-year Power 5 starter with the upside to develop into a NFL draft selection.
