01 Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix FS, Alabama 6'1" 208 A 6.9 Full Scouting Report

Scouting Report:

HaHa Clinton-Dix – Safety

Clinton-Dix is a 3rd year junior and a two year starter at safety. He is a former 5-star recruit who was courted by the best programs in the country. He was suspended after the fourth game of this season for receiving improper benefits. Because of the suspension, the word on the street is, he will enter next spring’s draft.

Clinton-Dix has all the tools to be a top NFL safety. He has size (6’1 – 210), play speed (4.50), athleticism, and power to go along with quick reactions and instincts. He is alert on the field and doesn’t make a lot of mistakes. He can lock up in man coverage on a tight end or slot receiver and is a smart zone player. He has range from the hash to the sideline to go along with very good ball skills and hands.

With his size, he is a physical run support player who can be quick to come up, can get rid of blocks and is a very good tackler. He flashes blow-up tackle ability and isn’t shy about throwing his body around. Unless something comes back negative in the character report, I don’t see any reason why he wouldn’t be a premium pick. He is a play maker and a presence on the field. He should be able to play either safety position at the next level and start early in his career.

02 Calvin Pryor FS, Louisville 6'2" 208 A 6.8 Full Scouting Report

Scouting Report:

Calvin Pryor – Safety

Pryor is a third-year junior and has been starting since his freshman year. He is a big, physical safety who loves to hit and throw his body around. His estimated size is 6’2 -210, and he has very good play speed. I would estimate his speed at 4.48. To go along with size and speed, Pryor is a very good athlete. He can change direction, plays with bend, and has a smooth turn. He shows he has a quick and low back pedal and can come out of his pedal and break on the ball without wasted steps.

Depending on the defense called, Pryor can be lined up both deep or near the line of scrimmage. He is an instinctive, quick reacting player who almost always seems to be in the right position. He is very good in run support, reacting quickly and being physical. He comes up and does a very good job getting rid of blocks and is an excellent tackler. He is one of the more explosive tacklers I have seen this year. Pryor is a top competitor who consistently chases the ball and always takes good angles.

In coverage, you don’t see him in man coverage much, but he is a very good zone player who does an excellent job picking up receivers crossing into his zone. He has excellent range to get to the sideline and help out over the top. His awareness is usually very good, but I did see him blow a coverage in one game where he was late reacting to a receiver breaking deep. Other than that play, his reactions have been good. While you don’t see him play man-to-man coverage, he has the tools to be a very good man-cover player. You see his hips and turn ability while in zone.

Pryor is one of the better safeties I have seen this year. He has the tools to be a top NFL safety and can play either strong or free. He has excellent size and can be a violent hitter. I see him as a starter his rookie year. A very solid “A” level player who should be drafted high.

03 Ed Reynolds FS, Stanford 6'2" 205 B 6.5 Full Scouting Report

Scouting Report:

Ed Reynolds – Safety – Stanford

Size –
6010 – 207 – 4.57

Strong Points – Size, anticipation, instincts, zone coverage, hands, run support

Weak Points – Production fell off in 2013, play speed, man cover, just adequate range

2013 Stats – 87 total tackles, one interception, four passes broken up

Summation – Reynolds is a fourth-year junior and a two-year starter. He redshirted in 2010 and missed the entire 2011 season with an ACL injury. He came back to start in 2012 and 2013 and had six interceptions in 2012. His dad played in the NFL for both the Patriots and Giants.

Reynolds has ideal safety size at 6010 – 207, but he is just an average athlete with average play speed. He timed 4.57 at the combine but plays like a 4.60+ type. He is an average athlete, has good body control and change of direction, but lacks any quick twitch to his movement. He is not explosive, as evidenced by his jumps (32.5, 9’9”).

He plays free safety and has good instincts and anticipation. He reads things well and does a good job keeping plays in front of him. He does an adequate job getting to the sideline from the hash in zone because of his ability to read plays. He has good ball skills to go along with good hands. His interception production really fell off in 2013, getting only one after having six in 2012.

He isn't asked to play much man coverage, as he lacks the quick twitch and suddenness needed. He is best if matched up versus a back or tight end, as he can struggle with a fast receiver. He is willing in run support, reacting quickly and is a consistent tackler.

Reynolds is the prototypical over-achiever. He is not a special athlete but he is a good football player. He gets by on his instincts and toughness and has the ability to be an eventual starter in the right situation. He should probably have stayed in school another year.
